Remember last autumn when I made a post about a standalone song by a brilliant 19 year-old Hannah Rodgers aka “Pix”? Well, the dream-folk singer/songwriter from South London is back with some big news. In the “small news” department, she added another x to her stage name. Now she’s Pixx. Yesterday, via her social media platforms, she announced the big news that she’s been signed to 4AD Records and that her debut EP will be released on August 28.
I’ve listened to the title track of that EP and watched the video about a dozen times today. I simply can’t get enough of it. From her amazing voice to the Cocteaus-esque light veil of dreamy guitars and synthetic drums to her pixie-ish good looks to her icy thousand yard stare, to the mystery of what exactly just happened, I love everything about this video and song.
I’m hoping that this talented young woman has a very fruitful career ahead of her, and a full-length in the near future.
