Fixers - ‘Who Says Boys’
As swathes of shimmering electro give way to a proper pop chorus, you quickly realise that, like Friendly Fires before them, these Oxford scamps should only release records in the summer. Which is something of a conundrum given Fixers’ year-long mission to graduate from the buzz band class of 2011.

Hey Brothers and Sisters, as we’re sure a lot of you can tell, the album release has hit a glitch and isn’t out today.
We’re so sorry we couldn’t let you know sooner but we’re working super hard to get it to you as soon as we possibly can. Hopefully a new release date will be set in the next few days and the album should be in everybody’s CD players in the next few weeks!
All you vinyl fans fear not, the 12” will still be available to buy as of Thursday and we will post links soon. Everyone who has pre-ordered hold tight too, it is coming!
Below is an exclusive remix by our compadre Chad Valley of our forthcoming single, Really Great World.
Thank you all so much for your patience, this album is very dear to us and we can’t wait for you to hear it - Jack, Jason, Roo, Michael & Christopher xx
