Abbie Ozard and Pixey Release Collaborative 'miss american dream'

Abbie Ozard teams up with Pixey for anthemic new single ‘miss american dream’ - an arms-aloft ode to best friend crushes, accompanied by an instantly-iconic video inspired by female friendships. 

Abbie and Pixey’s bond began virtually with the two mutual fans exchanging DM compliments over Instagram before meeting in Pixey’s home studio.  

The track was a team effort, written together, and the very first time that Pixey has produced for another artist. It reflects themes of female friendship and having the constant support of strong women, something both artists hold as sacred. Both Abbie and Pixey share a similar path, striking out into the national music scene from the North West (Abbie from Manchester, Pixey from Liverpool) to wider acclaim.

Liverpool based songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Pixey’s highly-anticipated debut album 'Million Dollar Baby' is due for release 2nd August via Chess Club records.  This follows widespread support for her previous releases including being championed by Radio 1’s Clara Amfo, Jack Saunders and Mollie King, and spotlighted by Spotify.  

Abbie’s debut album 'everything still worries me' is out July 25th via House Anxiety (Courtney Barnett, King Krule, Genesis Owusu, Royel Otis).

The debut LP is at heart a celebration of friendships, family and relationships, all the while presenting an underlying sense of uncertainty. The juxtaposition between embracing small joys, and the way they can quickly turn sour - your drink spills, your ice cream melts, your socks have holes in them - reflects the unease of navigating life in your twenties. 

It embraces knotty questions - should we be happy and content with the small things that bring us joy? Are we being spoilt by wanting more? Or are we meant to work as hard as possible to achieve our ‘dream life’? Abbie paints an ‘upside down world’, not knowing what the hell is going on - all the while romanticising everyday things to come back down to earth. In other words, it is life in full colour.
