Having spent the past few years working away in her bedroom, Liverpool’s Pixey is no stranger to top notch indie-pop. Her early releases Hometown and Young caught our attention way back in 2017 and have had us hooked ever since, making the news of her signing to the legendary Chess Club Records extra sweet.
Joining fellow northern powerhouse Phoebe Green on Chess Club’s roster, Just Move is Pixey’s first release with her new label; signifying a huge step up in both her career and her music.
Written and produced in her own bedroom, the track pays testament to her knack for infectious indie-pop which focusses around one original riff or beat. On Just Move, we get to hear Pixey at her very best. It’s infectious and refreshing, without taking away from any of her talent - simply put, it’s proper good pop.
Chatting about the release, Pixey details: “‘Just Move’ was written and recorded in my bedroom at the beginning of lockdown. I thought it would be ironic to write a dance tune when the last thing anyone would be doing is going out and actually dancing. On the flip side I really missed going out and doing something that simple. It's a clear instruction - the song's meaning is as literal as it sounds. With the last few months feeling so complicated and unprecedented I thought it would be refreshing to write something with a simple request, as dancing and moving is in (most) people's nature!”
