CloudKid Presents updog - Kerosene Hearts EP

updog’s final track of his Kerosene Hearts EP, ‘caveat emptor’, meaning, “let the buyer beware,” has arrived! This last song showcases the final stage of a breakup; in this case, the narrator starts to accept their fate and attempts to move on from a broken relationship. Sonically, the song is an alternative, sad pop, Labrinth-esque, emotional ballad that reflects the nature and narrative of the melancholic tune.

updog says of the song, “The two people involved in the relationship finally learn from their experience by the time this song rolls around. They also realize that they are responsible for the damage they are going through. They should have seen the red flags early on and not have idealized the relationship in the way they did. The lyrics are introspective and thoughtful, describing how the main narrator is able to finally reflect on his past mistakes in an encouraging attempt to learn from them. It’s a hopeful, bittersweet end to the EP.”

Drawing from his own life experiences, updog’s music is a testament to the power of vulnerability and raw emotion; an exploration of the complexities of the human condition, touching on themes of love, loss, and self-discovery. With, ‘Kerosene Hearts,’ updog takes listeners on a rollercoaster ride that comes with being a hopeless romantic, navigating their emotions at the end of, what was, an idealised and damaging relationship. The result is a body of work that is deeply personal and incredibly moving. As an artist, updog is committed to showcasing his authentic self to his audience, his work — he’s hopeful — acting as testament to the power of music to connect people and uplift the soul.
