Hannah Rodgers returns with a new Pixx album, ‘Small Mercies’, released on 4AD.

Although love lives at the heart of her second album, it has little to do with romance. ‘Small Mercies’ is absolutely not a heartbreak record, nor is it a celebration of new love, or sisterly call-to- arms or vengeful catharsis. Instead, it is a series of poetic examinations of love across the experiential spectrum, from the micro (self-love) to the macro (devotional faith-inspired love, love for this planet), set to a soundtrack that mixes electronic pop and grungy guitar rock with aplomb.

‘Small Mercies’ follows the 23 year-old’s debut album, ‘The Age Of Anxiety’ (2017) - an unsettling synth-pop record fuelled by Pixx’s own debilitating experience of angst - and 2015’s forlorn and folk- edged ‘Fall In’ EP. Co-produced by Simon Byrt (who worked on both her EP and debut album) and Dan Carey, it sees Pixx assuming different personas to examine the damage done by religion, gender-based power hierarchies and stereotypes, the tipping point of Earth’s destruction and love.
