Pixx - Shares Lyric Video For 'Funsize'
Pixx : Shares Lyric Video For 'Funsize'
10th June 2019

Small Mercies, the latest record by the singularly idiosyncratic artist Pixx, is out now.  Hannah Rodgers’s second studio record is a series of poetic examinations of love across the experiential spectrum, set to a soundtrack that mixes electronic pop and grungy guitar rock with aplomb.  Today, the South Londoner shares a self-produced video for album track ‘Funsize’.

Watch 'Funsize' here.

Small Mercies follows the 24 year-old’s debut album, The Age Of Anxiety (2017) – an unsettling synth-pop record fuelled by Pixx’s own debilitating experience of angst – and 2015’s forlorn and folk-edged Fall In EP.  Co-produced by Simon Byrt (who worked on both her EP and debut album) and Dan Carey, it sees Pixx assuming different personas to examine the damage done by religion, gender-based power hierarchies and stereotypes, the tipping point of Earth’s destruction and love. 

“I felt more of a drive to write about certain subjects with this album,” Rodgers says.  “Man negotiating with God, God negotiating with man and man negotiating with the planet.  I find it hard to have an understanding of relationships in general – I think everyone does – and the addictive tendency that we have to look for something that’s eternal is something that intrigues me.  So, if you love God maybe what draws you to that is the idea of something that’s never going to end and that really intense love often takes place in human relationships, too.”
