CloudKid Presents updog - Need You (In My Life)

On “Need You (By My Side),” updog gets introspective and vulnerable on this moody, ethereal dark, somber alternative-pop ballad, sharing the tale of the first stage of a breakup, which many listeners can likely relate to.

updog says, “I wanted to follow the stages of grief with all of the songs of this EP, which is about the rollercoaster ride of breaking a relationship and trying to put it back together again. The first stage is the breakup. The feelings are of course denial and sadness. See, the person thinks they can’t live without the other and is practically begging them to take them back. The lyrics describe the pain of losing the person they love and the inner need to do anything they can to redeem themselves and get them back.”

»'s about that inner need to redeem themself. «

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. His next single, ‘Need You (In My Life),’ out now!
