This year Pixx is gearing up to release her first full-length debut album, but in the meantime she’s shared a live cover of Joe Jackson’s ‘It’s Different For Girls’.

At first, the lyrics Jackson’s 1979 song might sound as if he was singing about a man who goes out looking for sex, while his partner is in search of love. But in fact it’s actually the opposite way around. That switch-around of stereotypical gender roles seems almost the perfect fit for Pixx’s thoughtful, and thought-provoking, pop.

She turns the post-punk tune into a vintage guitar-led number that occasionally bursts forth with clashing cymbals. The floaty melodies means that Pixx’s voice is at the forefront, so if you didn’t get the twist when Jackson told it, you certainly will here.
