New ‘Romance’ Video
Pixx – the alter ego of Hannah Rodgers – has released visuals for her song ‘Romance’ created by Alice Clingan (the same director behind the ‘Waterslides’ video). Filmed at Rodgers’ beloved local football club, Walcountians, it’s a playful tribute to the romance that endures within its walls.
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.
