Pixx’s debut album, The Age Of Anxiety, was released in June to wide acclaim.  A collection of twelve songs featuring ‘I Bow Down’, ‘Grip’, ‘Baboo’ and latest single ‘Waterslides’, The Age Of Anxiety addresses a generation increasingly isolated by an unprecedented new world order, from the pressures of social media to an 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, 22-year-old 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.
