Nixer began as a conversation online between two friends at the beginning of the Global Pandemic. What seemed like an ordinary catch-up back in April 2020, turned into something very exciting. Nixer are forming a very distinct and unique sound that is grabbing the attention of many, despite being separated by the Irish Sea for the most part.
All Nixer songs are written, recorded and produced remotely by Seán Keenan and Gearóid Peggs in their humble DIY bedroom studio setups in London and Dublin respectively. As of October 2021, the duo are now based in Southeast London.
Nixer released their debut record titled 'PEOPLE FEEL' on May 27th which came in the form of a six track concept EP. The EP received support from BBC R1's Jack Saunders ('Next Wave Artist') and Gemma Bradley, BBC 6Music's Steve Lamacq ('Spotlight Artist') and Lauren Laverne ('While You Were Sleeping'), RTÉ's Dan Hegarty ('RTE TOTW'), Graham Smyth and Handsome Paddy. As well as support from CLASH Magazine, Nialler9, Golden Plec, Hot Press Magazine.
