In celebration of mental health awareness month, pop punk trio badxyou has teamed up with underground pop star 8485 for an emotively stirring single . The titled track is called ‘Better‘ and is available now on all streaming platforms.
‘Better’ has a powerful narrative stirring the emotions and message of the track. badxyou frontman Andy puts himself out in the open as he confronts his bipolar disorder while batting a toxic relationship of wanting to be seen as someone better than who he is. The track opens up with Andy singing ‘I got too drunk by myself it’s ok I don’t need help. I wanted to be someone better someone you could love forever.” All the while, a happy energetic guitar riff that sounds similar to The Killer’s ‘Mr. Brightside’ rings true along with a thumping drumline. Leading into the chorus, 8485 lends her angelic and pure vocals in response.
Here’s what badxyou had to say about ‘Better’:
“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.” – badxyou
