“‘Heaven’ is one of my favourite tracks from the record,” she says. “It felt good to play almost everything on the track & also be able to produce it exactly how I had always heard it in my head. It was the first track I have had live strings on too which was amazing to put together. It’s a ballad written from the perspective of someone who’s no longer here, hoping for one person to always love them. I wrote it for a member of my family who passed away, so it definitely means a lot to me.”
“When I was writing & recording Sunshine State I knew I wanted to create a new soundscape and mood that would evolve from the last EP,” she continues. “I have always felt strongly connected to the summertime and wanted to create a collection of songs that would encapsulate the sounds I always associated with the summer in my head. I also wanted the EP to have a beginning, middle and end, starting with Life In Stereo and ending with Heaven. I hope everyone can feel something similar to what I felt writing them when listening to the EP.”

If there’s just one thing to take from ‘Dreams, Pains & Paper Planes’, Pixey’s not-quite-full-length debut, it’s that she’s clearly a natural pop songwriter.
Lifted from her forthcoming debut mini-album, ‘Dreams, Pains & Paper Planes’.
She’s sharing new track ‘Recycled Paper Planes’ too.
It’s the first taste of a “new project.”
