What a thrill to kick off 2021 with our new signing, Nixer. I was blown away when I heard their latest single Relax - it felt like a dance anthem of hope and joy for 2021 after the horror show of 2020. Fast forward a few weeks and here they are on Blowtorch! 

Nixer are Seán Keenan and Gearóid Peggs and it all started as a conversation online between two friends at the beginning of the pandemic. What seemed like a quick catch-up back in April 2020 has melded the influences of two different musical backgrounds into a throbbing dancefloor sound infused with an indie guitar vibe. With four singles released they have formed a distinct and unique sound that is grabbing the attention of many, despite being separated by the Irish Sea.


All Nixer songs are written, recorded and produced remotely by Seán and Peggs in their humble DIY bedroom studio setups in London and Dublin respectively. The duo cite influence in their music from acts such as Boy Harsher, Molchat Doma, King Krule, Fontaines D.C., and The Stone Roses. This puts Nixer in a position where their sound is truly unique and original. Turn it up loud and listen for yourself.
