Pixies release first new music video for upcoming album

2016-09-07 11:10

Cape Town - The music video for Tenement Song made its debut on Monday as the first music video for the Pixies' upcoming album Head Carrier.

The album is due out on 30 September.

Taking its influence from the song's lyrics and Vaughan Oliver's album artwork, the video was conceived and created by the UK/European-based Krank! Collective, and follows a journey through a squalid tenement block on the brink of demolition. The Krank! team - Neirin Best, Lianne Pierce and Xavier Burrow - created the video using a variety of handmade and digital animation techniques, including old school light box, painted animation, rotoscoping and digital compositing.

Watch the video here:

Pixies head out on the road on 15 November to begin its 2016-17 global tour to support Head Carrier.  

The song can be streamed or purchased here.
