This is the very first release from Pixx, a new artist from the countryside that borders London’s sprawl. She is both a soulful singer-songwriter and a canny electronic producer, and the Fall In EP shows that she can merge those two practices together very well indeed. She’ll go far. Debut 12” record on 4AD.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 07 October 2015

"New EP by Pixies” announced Phil the other week before quickly correcting himself. Yup. Despite residing on 4AD this isn’t the Pixies but Pixx. Perhaps the Pixies should have changed their name to Pixx to differentiate the original band from their current monstrous configuration. .

Aaaanyway, this is a lot nicer than I imagined. Lord knows why I imagined it to be rubbish  - probably because most music is rubbish - but this is an interesting first effort. It has a haunting ethereal quality which provides me with kind of link back to the original murky, gothy 4AD headed by Ivo Watts Russell. 19 year old Hannah Rodgers (aka Pixx) went to the BRIT school (one has to be legally rich to make music these days) but lets not hold that against her. The opening title track has plangent guitars and confident vocals but that doesn’t do it any kind of justice at all. It’s lovely. Though I found the vocals on ‘A Way to Say Goodbye’ slightly shrill, ‘Flee’ is your classic late night piano weep step whilst ‘Deplore’ has sad vocals and a kind of early Portishead eerie-hop sound.

It’s one of those haphazardly promising EPs that could see the artist go one of two ways…Bjork or Dido. After the excellent ‘Fall In’ haunted me again I have just one thing to say to Hannah…... Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido.
