Pixx’s 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. Originally from Chipstead, Surrey, and a graduate of the BRIT School, 22-year-old Rodgers experienced a year-long period of insomnia caused by recurring nightmares at age 9 – her first awareness of anxiety. It left a lasting impression, inspiring a fascination with different states of consciousness, and is one of many somnolent events she draws upon for The Age Of Anxiety.

 

“A riveting and refreshing debut.” The Guardian ******

“One of the new voices in politically minded British pop.” Vogue
“One of the year’s best debuts so far.” The Sunday Times
“A genuinely smart, intriguingly playful set that both presses all the right Big Pop buttons and sounds decidedly off-centre.” Uncut 8/10
“A new and unique narrative for the contemporary world.” Loud And Quiet
“An album that perfectly contrasts light and dark.” DIY ****
“Pure 21st century pop.” Record Collector ****
