The Atlanta-based darkwave band, Now After Nothing have released an all new single, “Sick Fix” (Spatial Remix). The song is a remix of last year’s debut single, “Sick Fix” by Now After Nothing’s own Matt Spatial who wanted to give fans something new while the band wraps production on their debut EP set for release this Summer. The forthcoming EP was fully written and recorded by Matt Spatial alongside drummer Michael Allen.

Frontman Matt Spatial says this about the new mix: “I wanted to put something different out so I lined up another artist to do a remix of “Sick Fix”. I never intended to remix “Sick Fix” myself, The “Sick Fix” (Spatial Remix) just kind of happened. When the remix was done, I loved it so much that I began to incorporate elements of it into the live version of the song.”

And he adds: “The lyrics to “Sick Fix” and the remix are about dealing with ‘toxicity’ and the very real struggle to stay away or detach from the things we know are harmful to us: the family member that treats everyone poorly or the narcissistic partner for example. The track is also about the attachment to social media or the commercial media that spews false narratives to instill fear. Deep down we might know that continuing to engage in these things/situations is unhealthy. Yet, like the proverbial ‘car crash’, we can’t seem to turn away. Over time maybe it becomes so all-consuming that it might feel similar to addiction. It’s a ‘sick fix’ that we begin to subconsciously crave.”

The “Sick Fix” (Spatial Remix) is available on all major digital platforms including Bandcamp and Spotify.
