Released on June 2nd, The Age Of Anxiety is a brave step forward from Pixx’s first release, 2015’s Fall In EP. Instead of tales of loss and affairs of the heart, the record 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 title is borrowed 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.
