After the rousing successes of her previous singles, Pixey is about to embark on the biggest stage of her journey so far. ‘Colours’ is a raw memoir of life stories backed by a whole host of intricate indie-pop goodness and it lands on the 6th September. The five-track EP features the critically acclaimed ‘Young’ and ’Hometown’ and well as three other tracks, including opening single ‘Supersonic Love’ which will be available from the 23rd August.
With dreamy guitar melodies throughout, Pixey has mastered the use of space from start to finish. She takes you on a euphoric journey through each song, with her real-life talk, straight from the heart-to the heart lyrics and vocal performance that take things to another level. First single and opening track ‘Supersonic Love’ instantly sets the tone for the rest of the record, a glittery wonderland of fingerpicking, infectious vocal melodies and groove-setting drum patterns. Next up is ‘On My Own,’ another undeniably exciting record that features uplifting guitar work and epic festival-worthy moments from the get-go. Title track ‘Colours’ slows things down in the form of a carefully-crafted slick pop ballad, whilst ‘Hometown’ boasts a noughties indie-rock feel and plenty of attitude. Closing the EP is ‘Young’ a song that started turning heads back in 2016, it slots in perfectly and represents Pixey’s devotion to music for the last 3+ years. On creating the record, she added:
“Colours’ was my first project created in my bedroom, following a serious illness in 2016. During my recovery time, I decided to learn how to play, record and produce the songs I was writing on my laptop, using a basic home studio I put together in the following months. Every song on this EP was a form of escape during this time, which now completely influences the way in which I record my music.”
It isn’t surprising that Pixey released a demo track a few years back and after progressing through BBC Introducing Merseyside it received spins from Radio X, BBC Merseyside, BBC Lancashire and was Edith Bowman’s Record Of The Week on Virgin Radio, not to mention Simone Marie even picked her as her Artist of the Week on Soho Radio. ‘Hometown’ and ‘Young’ started to pave the way for what was to come and before long, it was quite clear that she had something special going on. Huw Stephens soon started to support on BBC Radio 1 and after playing the likes of The Great Escape, Live At Leeds, Liverpool Sound City and many more, Pixey secured her place as one of the most exciting up and coming artists around.
Armed with a collection of vivid, imaginative and downright catchy songs, Pixey is on a one-woman mission to spread her message far and wide. ‘Colours’ is finally here to brighten up your world – who’s in?
