Text excerpt by Run For Cover Records:

"...Helmed by lead singer/songwriter Michael Doherty and producer/bassist Nick Sebastiano–along with signature contributions of multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Alenni Davis, drummer Noah Dardaris, and longtime engineer/co-producer/confidante Scoops Dardaris–Pick Me Up, Turn Me Upside Down came to life over three years of intermittent writing and recording sessions that proved unexpectedly fruitful. The band decamped at Headroom Studios in Philadelphia, PA, as well as the same Ferndale, NY house where they made their debut LP, 2021's New Music and Big Pop (which drew critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum, Billboard, Paste Magazine, and many more) with the intention of making one album, but creating enough material for two. “The longer we spent in the studio, the more songs Michael wrote and we fleshed out together,” explains Sebastiano. “Since we were creating music with no end-date in sight, there was a certain aura of playfulness and experimentation inherent in our sessions.”

That feeling of openness became the key to Pick Me Up, Turn Me Upside Down. Another Michael's core sound–ultra-catchy melodies delivered through inventive chord progressions, lush arrangements, and Doherty's distinctive voice–is still present, but the record features new ingredients that push the music into unexpected directions. “I think the idea of ​​a good song is always changing for me,” Doherty says. “The creative processes or personal listening experiences I've had are always meant to give me a deeper understanding of that .”  

The album draws on a wide range of influences, from clear cut classics like The Beatles, to contemporary luminaries like Alex G, to the unexpected, like a strong inspiration from Sesame Street. “You can tell the musicians who worked on the show were given so much freedom because the songs go to so many places,” explains Doherty. 'There's a great compilation called 'The Count's Countdown' where Count plays a radio host and is just playing music from all over the show and it's so unpredictable. All of that encouraged me to keep the songwriting as free and unpredictable as we could...'"
