Hannah Rodgers, the 21-year-old musician more commonly known as Pixx, has announced details of her debut album, The Age Of Anxiety alongside the record’s opening track, ‘I Bow Down’.
Following the singles ‘Baboo’ and ‘Grip’, the new song comes accompanied by the technicolour, enigmatic video created by Natasha Lawes.
Released early June, The Age Of Anxiety follows Pixx’s first release, 2015’s Fall In EP – a collection of songs that led to touring spots on the same bill as Daughter and Glass Animals.
The new twelve-song collection, we’re told, “seeks to address a generation increasingly isolated by an unprecedented new world order, from the pressures of social media to ever-changing political turbulence” which, in the current climate, seems pretty fucking fitting.
Originally from Chipstead, just beyond the fringes of south London where suburban sprawl start to break into countryside, 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.
