Pixx “Fall In”
If it seems like we’re posting an awful lot of recs for female indie sirens lately, we are. Of course we always try to diversify our recommendations when we can, but the truth is 2015 has been full of amazing debuts from female singer-songwriters that are all too good to ignore. The latest name to join the pack is Pixx. The 19-year-old Londoner is about to release her debut EP in August 2015 and, in the meantime, has released a music video for her haunting first single, “Fall In.”
Pixx, real name Hannah Rodgers, has the kind of voice that can make anything sound ten times more layered than it really is. Songs about complicated love are a dime a dozen, but Pixx convinces us that her love is more than just the grumblings of a frustrated 19-year-old. Her music is worldlier and mature, transporting simple heartache into something distant and beautiful, where we can admire the beauty of sadness without being bogged down too much in reality. Maybe it’s the dream-like quality of her voice, but “Fall In” is the perfect song for those entire Sundays spent daydreaming on the couch. If you don’t believe me, you should try it. You’ll be forgetting about that guy from last summer in no time.
