Pixey Releases New Song “I'm Just High”
- Liverpool-based singer-songwriter Pixey has released a new song “I'm Just High” along with a music video.
The song is the third single off of her upcoming debut mini-album “Dreams, Pains & Paper Planes”, following “Recycled Paper Planes” and “Come Around (Sunny Day)”.
It was written by Elizabeth Hillesden and Rich Turvey. Produced by Pixey and Rich Turvey.
“'I'm Just High' is a track I wrote, recorded and co-produced between time in the studio and my own bedroom,” Pixey said of the song. “The track itself is a double entendre. I like to put my own experiences into my music and I feel like this song is probably one of my most honest songs to date. I hope people can find some comfort in the song, I always like to write upbeat, groovy beats to personal struggles I'm still figuring out.”
- The accompanying video was directed by Daniel Broadley.
She said of the video, “I remember having a clear concept of how I wanted the music video for ‘I’m Just High’ when I was writing the track. I wanted the verses to feel claustrophobic and constrained, with the choruses breaking free into a fantastical and unrealistic world always coming back to reality as the concept is a metaphor. Working with Dan was a dream - he took my concept and elevated it to a level I couldn’t have predicted & we shot on the hottest day on record which was definitely a challenge!”
The debut mini-album comprises 8-track and is set to be released on September 30 via Chess Club Records.
She said of the album, “Dreams, Pains & Paper Planes is my biggest release to date. The majority of the record was written, recorded and produced by myself in my bedroom, alongside a couple of studio tracks. Genre bending was something I wanted to experiment with, tailoring to the moods of each song but still keeping to the core big beat elements. I wanted to write a record that kept a sunny sound but was more anxious lyrically. More than anything, I want the listener to feel like they can dip into an alternate world for a while, whether it's comforting or not”
