The Anix & Julien-K Reunite

A few years ago, electro-rock artists Julien-K and The Anix joined forces in what they referred to then as an alt universe concept and issued ‘Your Lies Are Like Fire’. They have joined forces again for a brand new alternative rock single ‘Crawl’.
 
Featuring provocative lyrics and a soul performance from The Anix in collaboration with Julien-K’s fused with futuristic, heavy, distorted and chopped. The energetic track is an homage to early 2000’s core, the early stages of their careers when both artists were heavily experimenting with futuristic sounds.

 The song draws on a wealth of human experience both from their careers and relationship experiences. “There is a lyric in the chorus,” explained The Anix.“’Watch us fall into the dirt, watch us crawl’ which is in reference to what would happen if you are in the never ending rat race chasing things, inevitably you would end up in the dirt, or buried under it. The more I let go, and just go along for the ride, the more satisfaction I get.

“Learning to appreciate the ride, and not seek the end point is the most rewarding part. Example, when you are eating an incredible meal, you never want it to end, you want to just stay in that state of joy that is only present while in the act. You don’t eat your meal with the goal of the empty plate, you eat it to enjoy it. Same goes for listening to a song- you wouldn’t play your favourite track with the goal of the silence at the end of the track. You play it to experience what it brings to your life during the track.”
 
The song is said cross over into new places with new sounds. “I wanted this song to kick off my new album cycle by bringing things back to what originally inspired The Anix project,” explained The Anix. “Electronic based alternative rock at its core. It was incredibly fun to approach the song with the mindset I was in 15 years ago, but with the new wealth of knowledge and technology I currently have at my disposal.”
