    “Pixx possesses the same celestial qualities as fellow label-mates Cocteau Twins or Blonde Redhead with a little astral, new age aesthetic of Grimes and the gothic melancholy of Bauhaus.” - The Guardian  First appearing in late 2015 with the ‘Fall In’ EP - which was hailed by The Sunday Times as “one of the most arresting debuts of the year” - Pixx (AKA Hannah Rodgers) has since released some more tracks to further intrigue and started to spend a lot of time out on the road, most notably tours with the likes of Daughter, Glass Animals and Youth Lagoon.  ‘The Age Of Anxiety’ is Pixx’s debut album and it finds her ostensibly place herself on the outside, looking in. Including ‘I Bow Down’ and ‘Baboo’, the 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.  A bold debut, it borrows its title from WH Auden’s final poem which was published in 1947, which charted one man’s quest to find substance and identity in a shifting and increasingly industrialised world.
