The Anix Returns to Rock With New Single “My Eyes”
Out Now Via FiXT

Los Angeles, CA – Known for his groundbreaking genre exploration, LA artists/producer The Anix returns to a harder rock sound with his latest single “My Eyes”. The track combines an atmosphere rock style with glimmering synth melodies and a uniquely suitable Old-West-style guitar riff. Paired with a fervent vocal performance, the result is a powerful creation that isn’t afraid to forge its own sonic identity.

The Anix has become a cutting edge rock mainstay with growing genre-based editorial support from Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, YouTube Music and Yandex Music, amongst others, now reaching over 300,000 monthly listeners across digital platforms.

“I’ve always struggled with a bi-polar writing style, where if I write an electronic track, the next time I go into the studio I end up with the exact opposite, something very guitar-driven and heavy. After my previous single which was in the vein of something The Weeknd or Moderat might do, I had the urge to go more in a Shoegaze direction with low-tuned guitars and slower-paced rock drums. The track has this dusty western sounding guitar riff that comes in and out throughout the song, which I think makes this great juxtaposition against the more tech elements and futuristic tones in the rest of the song. I really like the contrast of human vs nonhuman, or future vs past, high tech vs retro. My main inspiration behind using opposites together comes from movies. Star Wars is one example, where you have the highly stylized futuristic gloss black, white, and red world that Darth Vader resides in, and the more nature-based, warm-toned world that Luke Skywalker lives in. This balance in movies or music is the most important thing for me as a viewer or listener!” – The Anix

“My Eyes” is out now on all platforms from independent electronic rock label FiXT.

About The Anix

Originally founded in 2001 by Smith, and later joined by brother Logan Smith with longtime friend Chris Dinger, the group toured the Hollywood rock club circuit for several years. After writing hundreds of songs and playing countless shows, the band signed a deal in 2008 to record their first full-length studio album titled Demolition City. The band then landed a deal with The Diesel Management Group and toured throughout Europe on the “Rocket Science Tour” with electronic masterminds Apoptygma Berzerk.

In 2011 The Anix signed a record deal with Cleopatra Records to record their second studio album titled Sleepwalker. In 2016, The Anix began the process of reinventing themselves, shifting away from a touring band into a studio project. After a full year of development, the group emerged with Ephemeral in March 2017 as their 2nd album on Cleopatra Records.

In 2018, The Anix completed their metamorphosis from band to solo project as front-man & songwriter Smith signed with FiXT, the artist-owned/operated independent record label of electronic-rock pioneer Klayton (Celldweller, Scandroid, Circle of Dust). Since the signing, The Anix has gone from 25k Spotify monthly listeners to well over 100k and has landed in numerous Spotify editorial playlists such as Rock Hard, Sludge, All New Rock, and Rock Covers. Focusing on releasing consistent material since signing with FiXT, The Anix released the full-length album Shadow_Movement in 2018, Order / Disorderand Hologram in 2019, and GRAPHITE in 2020.
