Taking the aesthetic and DIY nature of bedroom pop and combining with the 90s alternative uprising gives you Ink Pix, the first bedroom alternative music artist. From Sussex UK, Ink Pix mixes an abstract sample-based feel with dissonant energy that reflects the change from the laid back, indie pop that has been bred over the last few years. 2020 has introduced a new world and the music will reflect that. Ink Pix is one of the first artists to example this as the introverts will thrive in this new stay at home leap through the turn of the decade. Pix’s music has been featured numerous times on BBC Introducing in the South and he has performed at a few venues in the Sussex and Surrey area accompanied by his three-piece act with the hope that they will be able to continue to do so to support local independent venues and live music events. 

Ink Pix’s first EP ‘Hole’ was released at the beginning of 2019 originally showcasing an electronic RnB cheese pop project. At the time it was Ink’s ambition to grow his audience and to do that he chose to target his music for streaming playlists and radio plays. This then meant that over the rest of the year Ink was producing music that he thought he should be producing rather than the music he truly had a passion for. Through the feedback he got from his local success Ink Pix felt that his audience could hear the potential but could never truly connect to his work. Jump to the beginning of 2020 Ink Pix remained completely silent online as he locked himself away, writing and producing every second he could. Drowning out the voices telling him to copy ideas, to pretend like he’s someone he’s not.

 

Now hits May of 2020 and in a shutdown world with a collapsing economy, political confusion and a global helath crisis Ink Pix is ready to showcase his rebirth. His new single ‘i’ will be out on the 24th of May with the accompanying B side ‘Needy Helpless Safe’. Featuring a music video made entirely in his lab/ bedroom where he represents the inner challenge we are all facing. Also working with his bandmates to produce live videos and plans to stream his new set of songs to encourage the importance of saving live music.

ARTIST BIO

ABOUT THE SONG

'I' will be available on the 24th of May on all platforms. Written and produced by Ink Pix it highlights the observations of oneself (inspired by meditative teachings). The journey to discover and realise all the hypo-criticism and habits that range from a random itch you have a lot to instinctively keeping money that falls off someone. It also comes at a time where the Ink Pix sound is changing so the story to find the new sound was a self assessment in itself. The accompanying B side 'Needy Helpless Safe' is about the importance and neglect of key workers and whether there's any justification for risking these people's health and well being just so everyone who treats them like shit can stay at home safely to then return to their lives and treat them like shit still.

'I' LYRICS

Where was the laugh

At the joke that wasn't funny

Where's the scratch on the itch

That's keeping you up all nigh

Temptation's crazy

Never a promise always maybe

Where's the shouting loud

Don't you know they did you wrong

A look away from the eyes

To the page that's on your phone

Human habits are just an illusion

Try to stop yourself from breathing

Temptation when it's like no other one

Found a note on the floor

Then made a runner run

Said was it a natural process

So what's the letter that's before your J

Chewed up nails on your fingers

Cause the feeling satisfies

All the meetings the addiction

Could be making you blind

Everybody needs a hug from time to time

But the outsiders won't change what's inside

A clean house is never clean enough

We always take for granted what we love

You'll hope to hell you can always fix it

The heart wants peace but the tongue can't taste it

Temptation when it's like no other one

Found a note on the floor

Then made a runner run

Said was it a natural process

So what's the letter that's before your J

Temptation when it's like no other one

Got kicked out the club

But blamed another one

Said was it a natural process

So do you think in terms of me and I

Oo alright

It's all about the game we play

You push my buttons push my buttons

The constant need for a human touch

The hopeful feeling for a one to love

It's all about the game we play

You push my buttons push my buttons

When almost never always never enough

A dedication what you'll never become

It's all about the game we play

You push my buttons push my buttons

Temptation when it's like no other one

Found a note on the floor

Then made a runner run

Said was it a natural process

So what's the letter that's before your J

Temptation when it's like no other one

Got kicked out the club

But blamed another one

Said was it a natural process

So do you think in terms of me and I

Oo alright

It's all about the game we play

You push my buttons push my buttons x2
