On the heels of the success of their current single, “Ghost,” Badflower has unveiled the new track “x ANA x” and an accompanying video which is equal parts bizarre and engrossing.
Of the new song and video, frontman Josh Katz said in a statement, “‘x ANA x’ is about my struggles with anxiety and panic disorder as a performer. It’s the scariest and most debilitating thing in my life so I made a joke out of it. You should try it.”
Forget about making a joke. Considering how even major news publications, like The New York Times, are running features titled “Prozac Nation Is Now the United States of Xanax,”
“x ANA x” has the potential to be an almost sincere anthem.
Judge for yourself below. (WARNING: Song contains NSFW language.)
“x ANA x” can be found on Badflower’s debut LP Ok, I’m Sick, which comes out February 22, 2019, and is currently available for pre-order in multiple formats here.
