Biography

THE UPSIDEDOWN is an American rock band based in Portland, Oregon. Comparisons to The Jesus and Mary Chain, Echo and The Bunnymen, and Love and Rockets reflect on the band’s influences, but The Upsidedown’s sound is something all their own. Music from The Upsidedown seems to be a product of their Pacific Northwest environment… dark, atmospheric, moody and romantic with the occasional volcanic explosions.

Formed in 2003 from the remnants of local shoegazer cult favorites The Bella Low, the group released its debut LP, “Trust Electricity” on Reverb Records in 2004. The record turned some critical ears in the industry. MAGNET featured them in the current “Band to Watch” article, and The Boston Globe described their music as - “dreamy and decadent in all the right places”. The six-piece soon began making a name for itself in the Northwest, and the press continued to take notice: “The Upsidedown create a psychedelic sound with all the hazy swirl and tambourines one would expect…and carries layers of sonic fog and grit. The sound is textured, and the performances polished.” - The Oregonian . “The Upsidedown is a diligent band that’s been around the Portland block and paid their dues. Let’s relish the last moments of this band’s locality before they are stolen from us” - The Portland Mercury
