“To me, ‘Upgrade' is the ultimate heartbreak song but with a dark twist. It’s about that moment when you realize that someone has complete power over you and no matter what they do you can’t help but to crawl right back. Sometimes all you can do is find the beauty and humor within the destruction,” states Twin XL frontman Cameron Walker.
DREAMERS front man, Nick Wold, adds, "Not everyone’s love life is a perfect Hallmark card, so this Valentine’s Day season, me and the brothers Twin XL are dropping a breakup song. It’s called ‘UPGRADE,‘ and it’s dedicated to everyone who’s ever been unhappy in love. Love on, friends."
“Upgrade” follows the release of the band’s recent radio single, “Slow Heart”, which was included in the latest NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL MUSIC!, VOL. 78 compilation among artists such as Olivia Rodrigo, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd.
“Slow Heart” follows the release of “Lemonade”, “Problematic”, “Melt” and most recently “Lonely”, a collaboration track featuring Little Hurt and Rad Horror.
The hypnotic hybrid of Los Angeles-based alt-pop band TWIN XL had its breakout in 2019 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP How To Talk To Strangers featuring the catchy hit single "Good," which peaked at #19 at alternative radio and spent 5 weeks on Billboard's Top Alternative Songs Chart peaking at #24.
