Pixx: electropop and satiric romances at a football club's night
Watch the new video for "Romance"!
Pixx – the alter ego of Hannah Rodgers, who makes cliche-free electropop and indie music – has released visuals for her song "Romance". It was created by Alice Clingan (the same director behind her latest single, "Waterslides" video) and filmed at Rodgers’ beloved local football club, Walcountians. It’s a playful and satiric tribute to the romance that endures within its walls. Otherwise, the relationship between Hannah's passion for football and music is not and accidental thing...
"Hopefully in my lifetime females will be raised from day one to have the same aspirations and choises as men do in both music and football." - she said to Soccer Bible. You can read about it more in the article attached.

Originally from Chipstead, Surrey, and a graduate of the BRIT School, 22-year-old Rodgers’ 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.
