“…ablues-shape with a Beatles-esque left turn, and a lot of Pixies referential lyrics.” as Black Francis put it, is probably the best way to describe Pixies’ latest effort off their recently released album ‘EP-2′. Released on 27th January, the Judy Jacob directed video stars controversial artist Nando Messias as some sort of hermaphrodite creature from outer space who creeps into our vision with unsettling smoothness, all the while leaving us undecided whether to feel dazzled or spooked.
Despite the fact of it being completely different from Pixies’ previous videos, it still retains that certain magnetism typical of all their material, with all the sound difference twenty years of them on the music scene may have produced.
Heading to South America at the end of March for a string of festival dates including Lollapaloozas in Chile, Argentina and Brazil, they will be playing London’s Field Day in Victoria Park on the 8th of June.
