Pixx – the alter ego of Hannah Rodgers – has released visuals for her song ‘Romance’ created by Alice Clingan (the same director behind the ‘Waterslides’ video). Filmed at Rodgers’ beloved local football club, Walcountians, it’s a playful tribute to the romance that endures within its walls.
Currently on tour with friends HMLTD, Pixx has confirmed details of a special free show London’s Old Blue Last on Friday 20th October. The evening will be curated by Rodgers, who has selected burgeoning talents Milk Disco and Adults to appear on the bill alongside Pixx. Later this month she heads on a short tour which includes her first headline shows in Nottingham, Manchester and Bristol.

Originally from Chipstead, Surrey, and a graduate of the BRIT School, 22-year-old Hannah Rodgers’ debut album, The Age Of Anxiety, was released in June to wide acclaim. A collection of twelve songs featuring ‘I Bow Down’, ‘Grip’, ‘Baboo’ and latest single ‘Waterslides’, The Age Of Anxiety addresses a generation increasingly isolated by an unprecedented new world order, from the pressures of social media to an 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 70 years later.
