There’s no greater testament to an artist’s talent than their ability to provide cathartic escapism with their soundscapes. Which is exactly what you’ll sink into when you hit play on the transfixing debut album Mixed Emotions by up and coming Alternative artist Gixn.
Just as the album says on the tin, each track will offer a new facet of Gixn’s soul, but each of the tracks come steeped in light accordance. Ingesting lyrical resonance has never been easier.
The introduction track “Distant World” kicks off as a hazy lullaby dreamscape before Gixn’s sweet harmonic vocals start to interplay with the affably resolving instrumentals.
With the lyrics unravelling like an unfiltered stream of consciousness and the melodic beats offering a smorgasbord of ambience, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more benevolently magnetic track on the airwaves from any artist – iconic or new!
You can slip into Gixn’s 2020 album for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
