Pixx has 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. Listen via the image below.
‘I Bow Down’ is the opening track from Pixx’s debut album The Age Of Anxiety, released on Friday 2nd June via 4AD / Remote Control.
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. The Age Of Anxiety borrows its title 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. 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 Friday 2nd June digitally and on CD and limited coloured vinyl formats. Pre-order the bold debut album
