"Walk Down The Street" is a guided tour on an avenue crowded with contradictions. Walk down a busy city street and we're bombarded by images of glamorous people we'll never be, lifestyles we'll never have, expensive stuff we'll never own, and beautiful celebrities we'll never know. It's a landscape owned by the few and populated by the many who are part of it but feel like outsiders.
Nix doesn't just see the world; he feels and experiences and translates it into music. So Nix changes tempo to draw attention to a section of a song that might otherwise get lost in the mix. Or he'll strip away all other sound and let one instrument speak. His lyrics are like a bittersweet diary. And his lines are colored with off-notes and tempo changes heard in experimental music like early Pink Floyd with Sid Barrett, Devo, and REM.
