“I trained as a songwriter with Youth. His manager said, ‘Youth is a shaman and you’re a witch, so you two are perfect.’ met on Facetime and we started sending files back and forth.
With Youth working from Spain and Smith in London, he would send her backing tracks while she sent back the lyrics and vocals before it “quickly turned into something special”.
“He said, ‘Brix, this is your solo album. It’s not going to be for anybody else,'” Smith said. to be overpowered, we have two amazing guest singers on it.”
She also talked about her new band at the event. “I’m going under the name Brix Smith or maybe Brix Smith Group, I haven’t decided yet. It’s time for me to put my money where my mouth is and take it out there! We are all between 40 and 60 years old and they are all the best post-punk feminists.
Smith went on to explain how “the dynamic of playing with all the women” was “something I’ve never done.”
“I’ve always been a woman in a man’s world,” she added. “The Falls were dirty, ugly guys, you know? The dynamic of playing with these women is just phenomenal. It’s just nice hanging out with great, like-minded people.
“Deb Googe is just my teammate and an amazing bassist. I’m super lucky.
