EP of the week - Nixer I hit the town and the town hit me back

Nixer are South East London/New York City duo Seán Keenan and Simon Gardner, and together they have crafted a seven track collection of synth wave/electro pop tracks which comprise the project's second EP I hit the town and the town hit me back.

Like all great artists, what Keenan does so authentically is add his own personality to the mix; post punk touches and vocal punches to the witches brew of Simon's electronic beats.


Also Keenan writes all the lyrics - the lived experience of an Irishman living in London adds an extra dimension to his tales of lust, love, paranoia, nightlife, loneliness, addiction, and finding euphoria and empathy in art.
