Scottish quartet The LaFontaines channels their optimistic mojo with their new rock/rap single “Up” – an upbeat, bouncy track that is trimmed with swag strings and punchiness of hip-hop energy. If your optimism has been murdered by the latest newsfeed trend, “Up” will help resuscitate it:

In regards to the track, frotman Kerr Okan explained that it “is about that feeling of optimism. It’s for the people who have taken a good few on the chin but refuse to go down. This was the easiest song I’ve ever written.”
