Going through life and under the spell of addiction. Ang consoles himself by singing and drinking. Sip by sip feeling better. A woman suddenly stumbles upon him. Seeing how poorly treated and misunderstood he was, she takes him in to a special place where Ang has to decide to go Up or stay where he is.
Ang continues to fight with himself and the thoughts that held him back while diving deep into unconsciousness. Placing himself in a dream as a baker in his own bakery carefully crafting and putting back together the ingredients that embody his identity and Take him UP.
In regards to the song, Low comments: “Up is a story about going higher, getting better, moving forward and second chances. When I started writing the album (2 1/2 yrs ago, which was just the song up at the time) labels had pushed me away.. most of my industry contacts faded and I was just a depressed lonely producer. I began writing this album because I just needed relief. Nothing was going right and I just needed to write something to feel anything. I ended up meeting a great team.. producing, writing scripts, directing, choreo, costume designer. I was getting comfort from just being an artist. All that I had been looking for to make me happy I found that happiness in my art. As low as I felt the music kept pulling me up.
Up describes that journey. Through Ang’s dream, he is taken to a place where he has to decide if he wants to keep going up.”
