Pixey // Young
Early January is unique in allowing us some time to gasp for air and gaze ahead to what promises to give us reason for excitement in the year ahead, and Pixey is just one of those artists who piqued interest last year and looks capable of igniting in 2018.
Initially tipped off about the young Liverpool-based singer’s talent by the altruistic bunch over at Bido Lito!, Pixey grabbed our attention with Young, a reverb-shrouded gem that shoves a catchy ode to youth through the prism of slacker pop. That early interview with Bido saw her claim a love for Mac DeMarco, and that’s apparent from the couple of other tracks on SoundCloud and Spotify (Birthday and Hometown) – the melodies just sound like they come so easily. Although the full debut EP hasn’t materialised yet, we’ve heard enough to be certain that it’s going to be essential to keep an ear on in the year ahead.
