"I'm so fucking tired and equally wired," UPSAHL relatably claims on the fourth track of her new EP, Sagittarius. From unabashed self-love on the opener, "Kickflip," to fearing her own vulnerability on "Into My Body," and reckoning with the internet's equally stimulating and denigrating nature on "Antsy," each track fearlessly engages with what it means to be a young woman (and Sagittarius) today.

“The EP is very much about owning your shit, so I hope that rubs off on people,” she elaborates in an earlier interview with V.

Off the back of her debut album Lady Jesus, the artist's latest project walks listeners through a series of personal reflections: "This EP is about owning all parts of myself, even the not-so-great ones," UPSAHL explains.

After years spent gaining prominence across the indie music scene in Phoenix, Arizona, the singer-songwriter has now made her mark globally after lending her pen to Dua Lipa's Grammy Award Winning album, Future Nostalgia, as well as writing for other young talents like Madison Beer, Little Mix, and Renee Rapp. Combined, her many musical collaborations have amassed over 520 million streams.

The project is accompanied by five vignettes that offer a visual for each of the EP's tracks. For "Toast," co-written by Tove Lo, UPSAHL croons from the bed of a truck as it makes its way through a city tunnel. Moving almost erratically against the speedy backdrop, she comes to embody the mind-racing nature of heartbreak. And for "Skin Crawl," clad in a metallic bolero and parachute pants, she keeps a poker face—even against herself.

Sagittarius follows UPSAHL's successful debut headline tour; she sold out venues across the US before touring internationally across Australia, the UK, and Europe. Given her already extraordinary success, Sagittarius is set to catapult UPSAHL into the very world her EP revolves around: the stars.
