Pixx’s debut album, The Age Of Anxiety, is released today.
The twelve-song collection, featuring ‘I Bow Down’, ‘Grip’, ‘Baboo’ and ‘Waterslides’, seeks to address a generation increasingly isolated by an unprecedented new world order, from the pressures of social media to ever-changing political turbulence.
The Age Of Anxiety borrows its title from W.H. Auden’s final poem, charting one man’s quest to find substance and identity in a shifting and increasingly industrialised world. Published in 1947, Auden’s six-part rumination on human isolation in the modern age parallels the overarching themes of Pixx’s work some seventy years later.
Pixx starts a headline tour around the UK tonight in Norwich. You can find the full schedule, and ticket links, plus album details here.
