Watch the video below
Pixel Fix‘s return this autumn has found the band in superb form. Embracing the distinctive electronic and wonderfully atmospheric sounds the young band have become recognised for – ‘I Want You the Same’ takes things up to a whole new level.
Today’s unveiling of the video for the single continues in the vein of previous singles which have recieved equally stunning visual accompaniments. The new video follows a couple as they navigate their way through a dark, ominous forest – eventually discovering themselves, and perhaps finding out things about one another that they did not expect, or did not want to find out.

“lovely, darkly dreamy slow soul, covered in clicks and cuts”
– The Guardian – New Band Of The Day
“It’s always exciting when something comes along and takes the best bits from two genres and squishes them together, but it can be problematic, it takes bravery. Oxford-based Pixel Fix may have just pulled it off, and pulled it off rather nicely”
– The Line Of Best Fit
“No matter how you slice it, Pixel Fix has a fresh vision for synthwave”
– Indie Shuffle
“Blissed-out ambient pop”
– Blah Blah Blah Science
Speaking on the release of the new single the band have said “‘I Want You The Same’ has been with us for a while, and has taken many different forms over time. It started out as more of a minimal electronic vibe, But when Clem wrote the main guitar line, the song really just went from there. The meaning of the song lyrically is kind of self explanatory in the name. It’s a song about someone changing into a different person, into someone they’re not and not wanting that to happen.”
Entrancing electronic cuts merge seamlessly with high-reaching pop-inflected melodies, but never do the band stray away from their alternative roots. ‘I Want You The Same’ has the sound of a band who are intent on making both hugely likeable music, but music that is also there to test the listener, to ask something of them, to get a reaction – and with this new single, they’ve definitely achieved that.
