Born Upset do the most with their feelings

Born Upset do the most with their feelings

Around Portland, it's easy to think that most of its inhabitants were born upset about something. Comment sections and beer-fueled bar discussions would prove this much to be true, but there's one duo out here that do a little something more with their frustrations. 

Made up of Kylee Glover on guitar, Hayden Alminiana on drums and both sharing vocal forte, Born Upset list their complaints through punky yells, snarky lyrics and raw hooks. One could easily get caught up in the catchiness of tracks without getting immediately caught up in the expressive aggression, but that's part of what makes the duo's music so infectious. It has a point, but the point isn't so blatant that it detracts from the actual product, which is likely part of why you voted the one of your favorite bands of the month.

Catch Born Upset along with Way Worse and a mystery guest over at The Chum Bucket on 8.24 for $5. Until then, listen to their self titled March release below.
