Wildcard (week 39):
Pixey – Just Move

Pixey (born Elizabeth Hillesdon) is a DIY artist in the true sense of the word: she literally does everything herself. She writes and produces her own songs, plays the drums, bass and guitar, and sings.

Listening to her music, you can hear she doesnโ€™t try to hide sheโ€™s from North West England. The influence of other bands from Liverpool and Manchester is evident. With itโ€™s lush guitars and breakbeat-like drums, her new single Just Move has a distinct Madchester sound. Think The Stone Roses, for instance. On top of that, the opening guitar riff sounds like itโ€™s borrowed from King Beeโ€™s Back By Dope Demand and part of the vocal melody comes straight from Madonnaโ€™s Material Girl. Further referencing the queen of pop, she even urges the listener to โ€œget into the grooveโ€.

However, with all of these ingredients, Pixey mixes an energy drink thatโ€™s very much her own. Itโ€™s fresh but spicey, and highly addictive.

Talking about her euphoric single, she says: โ€œJust 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. (โ€ฆ) 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) peopleโ€™s nature!โ€

This week, Just Move by Pixey is the Carte Blanche Music Wildcard!
