Blowtorch Records Podcast - Ep 30 Nixer go deep on their new single & EP People Feel
Episode 30 - our pearl anniversary and what an auspicious edition, as for the first time we welcome back a previous guest. To celebrate the release of People Feel from their upcoming six track EP, say hello again to Nixer. They've been quiet of late and now we know why. Peggs and Seán have been busy beavering away in their South London studio, brewing up this enchanting elixir of an EP. Now with the single released and feeling radio love from the likes of Gemma Bradley, Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq, Seán and Peggs open up about the making of the EP. Originally it was going to be called Afterglow and released in Summer 2021 but they decided to wait and refocus and now we have the brilliant result. We hear about the difficulties of working in different countries and the energy of now being together in the studio,  collaborating with Shiv, the awkward genesis of People Feel, the tracks they were listening to, the thrill of finding Rude 66 to master the EP and the sheer joy of playing their tracks live.There will be a 12" 45rpm vinyl release of the EP in late April.
