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.”

"London's Hannah Rodgers continues her joyous genre-leapfrogging, careening between emotionally splattered grunge, tight new wave and rickety electronica, all tied together by one of music's most versatile voices."  - The Guardian ****
“Rodgers remains her forcefully idiosyncratic self throughout and endlessly impressive in her ability to draw on electro-pop history.” – Q ****
“Pixx digs deeper and builds taller on Small Mercies.” – The Line Of Best Fit – Album of the Week 9/10
“Escape an increasingly mad world via the dancefloor.” – MOJO
“Her best work so far, it will make you dance, smile and think at the same time.” – Gigwise
"Small Mercies sees Pixx deliver an illustrious decimation of toxic masculinity in three acts.” – The Skinny ****
“A rewardingly eclectic mix.” – Clash
“Rodgers is an agreeably free-thinking musical auteur, as happy with a grungy riff as a modeish synthesizer refrain on her smart, playful album.” – The List ****
