Sick Fix by Now After Nothing

Darkenin Heart

The vibrant debut song Sick Fix from the darkwave duo Now After Nothing is released as frontman Matt Spatial and drummer Michael Allen introduce their new work. The song was mastered by John Davis and mixed by Carl Glanville (U2, Joan Jett) (Placebo, JAMC, Suede).

The introductory rhythms and pummeling bass of Sick Fix pay homage to the band's Sonic Youth and Bauhaus influences, and the subtle electronic and punk components complete the new group's distinctive and contemporary interpretation of darkwave.

Sick Fix features additional guitars by guest musician Mark Gemini Thwaite (Peter Murphy, The Mission UK). During the recording of this song, Spatial's passion for music was rekindled, and the band's efficiency and commitment to detail are very clear.

Matt Spatial comments: "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."
