Pixx Announces Long-Awaited Debut Album The Age Of Anxiety

On top of her live show at the Button Factory with Canadian singer Austra this March, Pixx has announced the date for the release of her first album.

Hannah Rodgers, the 21 year old musician behind Pixx, has also shared the opening salvo from the album, 'I Bow Down'. Following the singles ‘Baboo’ and ‘Grip’, its technicolour video was created by Natasha Lawes and premiered today.

Released on June 2nd, The Age Of Anxiety is a step forward from Pixx’s first release, 2015’s Fall In EP. A deeply personal document of heartbreak, the singer's four folk-infused torch songs drew early critical praise, with the Sunday Times hailing it “one of the most arresting debuts of the year." The EP led to subsequent tours with the likes of Daughter, Lush and Glass Animals.

Instead of tales of loss and affairs of the heart, The Age Of Anxiety finds Rodgers ostensibly place herself outside looking in. Her twelve-song collection seeks to address a generation increasingly isolated by an unprecedented new world order, from the pressures of social media to ever-changing political turbulence.

This bold debut 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.

The Age of Anxiety will be released June 2 by 4AD. Pixx will play at The Button Factory on March 25.
