Now After Nothing: Sick Fix

A new project is introduced to the world of darkwave, emerging with a potent and vital debut single. Now After Nothing are composed of frontman Matt Spatial and drummer Michael Allen, and their first track, Sick Fix, was mixed by Carl Glanville (U2, Joan Jett) (Placebo, JAMC, Suede) and mastered by John Davis.

Citing influence by Sonic Youth and Bauhaus, the new song is a demonstration of the band's modern and powerful take on post punk and darkwave, and it definitely makes a very strong impression.

On Sick Fix, Matt Spatial states: "I was at one of the lowest points of my life and without a musical outlet. I was damaged, defeated, and deflated. One day in New York City, riding through Central Park with earbuds in place, I rediscovered a band that didn't initially resonate with me. Hearing them this time was different though - I felt the spark. That emotional connection to a newly-discovered piece of music was the proverbial kick-in-the-ass I needed to ‘crawl out of cracks below.’ When I arrived home, I dusted off my studio gear and opened up files of previously unfinished song ideas, one of which was a rather bare recording of just a single bass line. It caught my ear and by the day’s end, Sick Fix was complete from start to finish. Listening back to it, I felt alive again.  I felt the same spark I had felt that day in Central Park that inspired me and reminded me I had more music inside of me.  I wasn’t going to let myself wither away. Though the band name came later, Now After Nothing was really born on that day, which is why Sick Fix undoubtedly needed to be our first single."

The memorable song establishes the tone for the fresh act's upcoming music and makes references to late-night dance floors enveloped in darkness.
