Brix and the Extricated
Our friend Brix Smith-Start has just released the first single Prime Numbers from her new album, Breaking State, and Pre-orders are now open!!
The band consists of ex Fall members Brix Smith-Start, Steve Hanley, Paul Hanley and Steve Trafford, and guitarist Jason Brown.
It was an honour to be among the first people to hear the album, and it is amazing! - A perfect combination of heavy baselines, momentum filled beats, spangly guitar (my favourite) and vocal melodies that will be stuck in your head for days. It’s a fun and emotional ride through punk and pop sensibilities, and tells the story of political and personal journey.
I first saw Brix and the Extricated play at Rebellion in Blackpool in 2016, and fell in love with her energy on stage (and who can say no to a pink glittery plectrum) That energy really comes across in the album and I’m so pleased to see them heading out on their UK tour. The world needs more kick ass females making music!
My partner Rufus Dayglo did the artwork for the CD, digipack and merch, and it looks blimmin’ fantastic!
Proud of everyone today.
Go Pre-Order the album!!
PS. See you at Night People in Manchester, and Dingwalls in London for the Album Launch, where Rufus, Brix, and the Band will be signing limited edition Merch!
I’ll be there nicking T-shirts….
