The Fix was born out of a desire to offer just that to the world – an escape from the daily grind to an alternative reality where freedom and liberty are key.
The musical journeys of Rhianna Kenny and Bill Laurance started off in decidedly different places – young pop diva from Leeds, in the top 20 as a teenager and London-bred jazz virtuoso, master of a wealth of instruments – but a chance meeting set off the musical spark that burns bright at the heart of The Fix.
‘Human Love’ is the sound of soaring, soulful pop melody colliding with a wealth of percussive ideas, out-of-this world piano lines and cutting-edge production nous (“We’re fascinated by the idea of nature vs machine”, says Rhianna) – not to mention an array of strange instruments picked up by Bill on his travels.
“I’m really interested in good lyrics, I find writing a very cathartic process because I’m dealing with feelings and situations that I’ve experienced, that have had a genuine impact on me. It all comes out in the wash.”
Says Rhianna: “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to connect with a lot of people. Watching a band that can really bring people together, that’s a special feeling and what we’re aiming for. It’s music written with festival crowds in mind.”
