Pixx – the alter ego of Hannah Rodgers – has released a new song, ‘Waterslides’, from her forthcoming debut album, The Age Of Anxiety.
A spiralling pop song, its accompanying video fuses a lo-fi aesthetic with the ultra-modern; the synthetic and the natural. Filmed in the futuristic city scape of Bilbao, directors Alice Clingan and Louis Milner explain the premise behind its visual companion. “The lyrics to ‘Waterslides’ are inspired by a dream Hannah had, isolated on a waterpark in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by emotionless suited figures. We tried to make the video in keeping with the surreal and lonely imagery that inspired the song.” Watch ‘Waterslides’ above, via YouTube, or stream the track here.
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. Limited pre-orders come with a zine designed by Hannah.
You can pre-order via all digital platforms here*.
*Digital pre-orders will receive ‘Waterslides’, ‘I Bow Down’, ‘Grip’ and ‘Baboo’ as instant downloads.
“A genuinely smart, intriguingly playful set that both presses all the right Big Pop buttons and sounds decidedly off-centre.” Uncut 8/10
“Dazzling and infectious.” Dork ****
