Pixey Releases Debut Mini-Album “Dreams, Pains & Paper Planes”: Streaming
Liverpool-based singer-songwriter Pixey released her debut mini-album “Dreams, Pains & Paper Planes” on September 30, 2022.
The EP comprises 8-track, produced by Pixey and Rich Turvey.
Pixey 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.”
She continued, “It's like me putting out what I think I can give in terms of writing and production. It's not really a concept album or anything like that. I think the sounds bend genres, which is something I really enjoy, but also I'm trying to find my favourite sound. But this is like a collection of all the things I love to write.”
Pixey shared on social media, “It's my first big project and I'll admit I was anxious to release this record, in an age of 10 second viral hits & followers being more important then ever, for the first time I felt apprehensive. It can often be easy to lose sight of why & who you're writing music for. But these songs mean so much to me & I hope they become something that means equally as much to all of you.”
Pixey explained of some tracks for the album.
“Come Around (Sunny Day)”
“'Come Around (Sunny Day)' is a '90s style summer tune I wrote around looped guitars and breakbeat samples. I wanted to create a tune with an upbeat vibe but with the lyrics keeping to a more anxious undertone. It's about struggling to say what you mean when someone won't hear you out – something I definitely relate to!”
“I'm Just High”
“'I'm Just High' is a track I wrote, recorded and co-produced between time in the studio and my own bedroom. 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.”
