Pixx - 'I Bow Down (Let's Eat Grandma RePixx)'
Pixx : 'I Bow Down (Let's Eat Grandma RePixx)'
4th May 2017

Debuted by Huw Stephens on Radio 1 last night, Pixx has just shared a remix of her song, ‘I Bow Down’, by experimental teen duo Let’s Eat Grandma. Their imaginative re-styling of 21-year-old Hannah Rodgers’ latest single moves the song into their unique weird pop world and is the pair’s first ever remix.

‘I Bow Down’ is the opening track from Pixx’s debut album The Age Of Anxiety, released on June 2nd 2017. 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. Borrowing its title from W.H. Auden’s final poem, which charts 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. Originally from Chipstead, Surrey, and a graduate of the BRIT School, 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.

The Age Of Anxiety is released on 2nd June on limited coloured vinyl formats, CD and digitally. 
You can pre-order the album on limited coloured LP and CD via 4AD here.  First 100 pre-orders come with a zine designed by Hannah.
