Exiled Russian “bedlamcore” artist n0trixx is today proud to release her new EP Rejected, out now via all good digital service providers.
The EP was produced entirely by n0trixx in her bedroom studio over the course of last year, whilst living as a recluse in a small village in Turkey, and mixed by London-based electronic producer External Subway.
n0trixx has today also released a lyric video for focus track ‘Hard To Be A God’, which examines her feelings about the political climate in her native country.
“Even after leaving Russia, I’m deeply concerned with the political situation there,” she explains. “Drawing inspiration from the Strugatsky Brothers’ masterpiece of the same name, and using grotesque imagery of a nation slipping into the darkness by defying knowledge and intellect, it’s an attack on my compatriots who refuse to open their eyes to the atrocities that they are allowing to happen.”
n0trixx’s previously released standalone single ‘AGORAPHOBIC’ was added to Spotify’s misfits 2.0 playlist, with ‘Sweet Baby’ played on BBC introducing Manchester.
The EP’s lead single ‘Do I Exist’ and follow up ‘Morphine’ were released earlier this year, and n0trixx has seen further press coverage from LOUD WOMEN, Already Heard, The James McMahon Music Podcast, BLUNT Magazine, Soundsphere Magazine, The Scene Zine, Alt Corner, Boolin Tunes, Metalheads Forever, Trap Metal Arsenal Magazine, Click Roll Boom and more.
Commenting on the record, and the power she ultimately found in accepting rejection, n0trixx says: “The EP is called Rejected because one of my mental health diagnoses is Borderline Personality Disorder, which makes people highly sensitive to rejection. As it happens, every track on this EP had been rejected one way or another by the people who didn’t believe in me, because they only cared about numbers. The people I looked up to ignored and bypassed me. In turn I rejected them and their values and I stood for what I believed in. I decided to finish every song by myself.”
“Now, a year later, when I actually have a very loyal fan base welcoming every solo track that I put out, I could not be happier about the choice I made. I believe that I created something far better than anything I could have made with those people who put material things first. I accepted the rejection and proved to myself that I don’t need anyone to create the music that I love.”
Following on from recent live appearances in Turkey, n0trixx will perform a handful of select UK live shows later this month, including a performance on 24th November at The Engine Rooms Rehearsal Studios, London to celebrate the release of the EP.
