Track Of The Day: Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra – ‘Empty Envelope’

A disarming reflection on the emotional resurrection that occurs in the wake of a bad decision, Dublin-based trio Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra have shared their latest single ‘Empty Envelope’. Released via Anon Records, the track is a brooding, shoegazey lament inspired by a dream that vocalist & guitarist Sarah Deegan had about receiving an empty letter in the post.

Formed of Deegan, Alice Grollero (bassist) and Danni Nolan (drummer), Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra met via Dublin’s underground & DIY music scenes and began writing music together inspired by the sounds of Mitski, Angel Olsen, Kathleen Hanna and Sinead O’ Connor. The band deliver their observations on life with a raw sincerity, which previous single ‘I Didn’t Love You When I Said I Did and I Don’t Now’ achieved through its shimmering guitars & Deegan’s cutting lyrics. With their new single ‘Empty Envelope’, the band have crafted another slow-burning, moving ode to emotional resilience.

“‘Empty Envelope’ examines the process of burning everything down to rebuild from the ashes,” Deegan explains. “It’s about the cyclical nature of bad decisions.” Recorded by Sean Montgomery Dietz, mixed by Sean Montgomery Dietz and Shane Tobler and mastered by Blanka, ‘Empty Envelope’ smoulders with poetic unrest, guiding listeners through the relief and frustration that comes with moving forward after making a mistake.
