Pixx’s sophomore album Small Mercies, out on June 7, 2019, really highlights the London-based singer’s grungy vocals. With lyrics that speak of deep thoughts and repression, each song has a bit of a love theme about it. These are not typical love songs, as they speak more about her thoughts about love and heartbreak, as well as what is wrong with society today. Each song has a different sound or feel to it. “Peanuts Grow Underground” has a mid-’80s Madonna vibe, while “Disgrace”‘s deep vocals demonstrate her vocal range. Each one has a different mood, almost as if she is a different character in each song throughout the album. The lyrics are easy to relate to, much like the words taken from late night thoughts about love lost or girl power, or a conversation. It’s a very relaxing and low-energy collection of tunes, kind of psychedelic and moody.
