Pixx has announced a full UK tour which includes a date in Liverpool, Getintothis’ Mark Flannery reports.
Channeling disparate influences, ranging from Siouxsie Sioux to Bjork, Pixx is about to set out on tour to promote her recent album, Small Mercies, a follow up to her 2017 release, The Age of Anxiety.
Pixx aka Hannah Rodgers, channels her views on everything from God, personal relationships and the state of the planet.
With the recently heavily rotated 6 Music track, Peanuts Grow Underground, Pixx has given a taste of the album’s oeuvre.
Throughout Small Mercies, she is able to mix jarring synths, glam rock and a voice which ranges from soprano to contralto, breathlessly straddling genres, confidently espousing her gender based politics.
Co-produced by Dan Carey and Simon Burt, who helped on The Age Of Anxiety and the EP, Fall In, her new album is a feminist call to arms about not only the state of the world today but also stereotypes and heirarchies which shape society, and how people are forced to think.
Rodgers is driven by a need to explore differing subject matter on the new album, and as she says herself, “I felt more of a drive to write about……..man negotiating with God, God negotiating with man and man negotiating with the planet”.
If you missed Pixx supporting HMLTD at The Magnet a couple of years ago, now’s your chance to experience some leftfield synth pop once more.
