CRAIG OWENS’ eclectic music project badXchannels have premiered two brand new songs, “The Spine” and “Sad, Ecstatic” via Alternative Press on Friday, May 18, 2018. The new batch of songs continue to showcase the musical evolution that Craig Owens has undergone over the past few years. The songs are now available via all digital music retailers.
“The Spine” is an ethereal journey featuring a lush synth atmosphere that helps build up the emotional catharsis in the lyrics, climaxing with an electronic breakdown. “The Spine is an inner dialogue themed track. An up close and personal song about how life is too short to spend living in fear” says Craig of the track. “‘‘Undivided will build the spine in this body of mine.’ The expressive explosion at the end of the song signifies the journey that we go on once we’ve chosen to walk through that fear and fire, head first into the true growth of our lives.” Bandmate TRENT CLARK says that “We wanted to create an intensity with this track, but we took a completely different avenue getting there. This song is all about the colors…once again we wanted to showcase the sounds we’ve been working with most recently, and make something between a ballad and a heavy hitter. We aim to be cinematic with our music, and this song really feels like it takes you through a journey.”
