Vinyl LP pressing. The Age Of Anxiety is a brave step forward from Pixx's first release, 2015's Fall In EP. A deeply personal document of heartbreak, those four folk-infused torch songs drew early critical praise, with the Sunday Times hailing it "one of the most arresting debuts of the year," and led to tours with the likes of Daughter, Lush and Glass Animals. Instead of tales of loss and affairs of the heart, The Age Of Anxiety finds Hannah Rodgers ostensibly place herself outside looking in. Her twelve-song collection seeks to address a generation increasingly isolated by an unprecedented new world order, from the pressures of social media to ever-changing political turbulence.
