badxyou set to release a new single
Punk trio, badxyou, is releasing a new single titled “Better” with the underground pop star 8485 on October 21st. The single is riveting, vibrantly emotional, and has a computerized sing-along hooks that are intoxicating. It also marks the first time badxyou has collaborated with the self proclaimed pop star, 8485.
In “Better”, badxyou’s vocal lead, Andy, vulnerably sings about his struggles with bipolar disorder and identity. The lyrics are emo, deeply personal, and exhibit complexities regarding mental health in a beautifully authentic manner. The production is also thorough with a beat that thumps and guitar riffs that glisten.
About 8485’s feature, badxyou said, “8485 is one of our favorite vocalists. After we made this record, we knew we wanted somebody that sounded pure, with an angelic type of voice. 8485 is exactly that.” Also, because October is Mental Health Awareness Month, badxyou could now have released “Better” at a better time.
