Today, HM Magazine is proud to premiere “Life|Alone,” the latest single from Upon the Water. Today also marks the Temecula, CA quintet’s one-year anniversary as a band. They released their first EP, Rise, earlier in 2014.

I asked the band to introduce themselves to you all, and they readily answered:

We are Upon the Water from Southern California, and our goal is to spread a positive message through a fresh and unique blend of ambient soundscapes, epic breakdowns, soaring melodies and head-bobbing grooves. We want to give listeners an experience they can take with them through all seasons of life.

Look for a full-length in 2015.

So when the world hit pause and artists had to call an audible, there is no one better to talk to about how those bands are pivoting in a new reality. Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.
