Anne’s Band, Upon Wings, Releases New Metal Song/Video, ‘Distant Memory’
I hope that you wake up with me on Saturday mornings here on WRIF, and if so, maybe you’ve heard me talk about my musical project. I head up a band called Upon Wings. It’s a musical project that I’ve had for more than a decade. When I started the project, our music was very gothic, classical and metal. Lately, I’ve been releasing some dark-trap pop tracks, which has been really interesting and fun. My last two singles, “Deal Breaker” and “Bad Habit,” were both dark-trap with a strong hip-hop beat. But, with Upon Wings’ latest song, I’m going back to my roots with a metal track.
Upon Wings’ newest single, “Distant Memory,” dropped on Oct. 27. It’s available to listen to on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and wherever you listen to music. Listen and watch below. This song features longtime Upon Wings producer and guitarist Kevin Jardine, as well as awesome metal drummer Pepe Clarke Magaña of Kyng and incredible guitarist Patrick Kennison of Lita Ford’s band.
“Distant Memory” is the third single I’ve released this year, following “Deal Breaker” and “Bad Habit.” I’m proud of myself, because my goal this year was to release more music, and I did it. I usually release one single per year, but this year, it will be four, as I have a holiday song on the way.
On that subject, I’m releasing an original holiday song called “Christmas with You” on Nov. 17. Pre-save it now here or by searching “Anne Ashley Christmas with You” on iTunes.
I also have a new music video for “Distant Memory.” I’m still doing my own videos, which is quite a task, but I enjoy the creative process. I think this video is extra special and perfect for Halloween. Reach out to me with your thoughts here. I’m hoping this song can help take Upon Wings to the next level, so that we’re considered one of the hottest newer metal bands out there. Oh, you’ll also hear “Distant Memory” on Midnight Metal on WRIF in November.
