Detroit’s newest pop punk band One Up, have shared their debut single and video with “Laid and Paid”. The video was directed by Branden Lee Keller and is a humorous parody of typical country music motifs: cowboy boots, pick-up trucks, and tire swings. The song was mixed and mastered by Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon, Motorhead, Funeral For a Friend).
On the new single, singer/bassist Alan Reitman shares: “‘Laid and Paid’ is a funny way of saying ‘I can’t stand you. But after a couple beers, expect a phone call.'”
Fronted by brothers Nick and Alan Reitman on vocals, guitar, and bass with TJ Mulawka on drums, One Up pulls from musical influences like blink182 and Neck Deep to create their upbeat, playful sound. The band’s humorous lyrics calling out ‘millennial culture’ are playing a part in bringing fun, pop-punk music back to the Metro-Detroit area.
