WHO'S ABOUT TO TURN YOUR FROWN UPSIDE DOWN?! 🙃 It's not everyday that all of us turn our bad days into a song or even an album, but Florida's native rockers, Set It Off have found a funny and creative way to do both.

Their newest song, "Upside Down", debuted today on BBC Radio 1 and drew in fans from all across the globe. The song is also the title of their upcoming studio album, set to drop October 7th! (Pre order while you still can!)

The music started off a tad slower, but still had that upbeat vibe to it. You could relax as you listened or bang your head to the beat of the drums if that suits you better.

Lyrically speaking, the song had a positive message to it that will resonate with fans in a variety of ways. For example: You take your bike for a ride and run into a car. Obviously running into a car is bad news and you're out of a bike. That accident then makes you late for work and your boss gets mad, so you end up getting fired, but on the bright side, now you have more time to ride that bike!

Even though those turn of events don't particularly have too great of a happy ending, it was still a reason to smile and turn that frown upside down. The guys in Set It Off are finding a little bit of positive inside a whole lot of bad.

While the chorus was repetitive, the verses changed up the scenarios an the outcomes each time. Towards the end of the song, the music began to give off a little bit of a blues/jazz feel. You can clearly hear trumpets, stringed instruments, and other similar instruments that were typically used for that specific type of genre. It gives the song a bit of an 'old time' vibe.

It's clear to see why the band chose this song in particular for the name of the album. It's diverse when it comes to the style of music, the message is a positive one, and there is even a bit of humor to be found. It's a well-rounded track that will give listeners something different, but good.

Set It Off's "Upside Down" earns an 8 out of 10 rating! To get the song today along with other released singles, pre-order now, or head over to the band's YouTube page!
