Album Notes
Upstanding Youth is a six piece ska-punk-reggae band from Oahu, Hawaii. They began performing in 2001 and since then have written, recorded, and produced four CDs. Their first three CDs, Trying to Stand (2002), Kam Highway Catharsis (2003), and STILL (2006), each won Best Ska/Punk Album of the year at the Hawaiian Music Awards.
Their fourth CD entitled A Sense of Urgency delivers the same powerful and compelling ska/punk vibes fans have come to expect from UY, but with deeper textures and a more distinctive rock edge to the music. A dramatic re-imagining of the band’s production process has resulted in a more coherent and musically elaborate offering, making this album one to look forward to.

Love this album. The more you listen the more you find things you love about it. Gotta listen, you'll see.


This album is proof that Upstanding Youth is definitely one of Hawaii's finest in Ska music. The production quality of this record is their best so far and the musicianship is tighter than ever. The music on "A Sense Of Urgency" is a perfect blend of punk and ska.
