Later this month, Pixies will release their new album, Head Carrier, the band’s sixth full-length record to date and follow-up to 2014’s reunion LP, Indie Cindy. Ahead of the album’s September 30th release, Frank Black and co. have dropped three teaser tracks: “Um Chagga Lagga”, “Talent”, and “Tenement Song”, which has been unveiled today via a handmade animated video created by UK/European-based Krank! Collective. Watch below.
Taking its influence from the song’s lyrics and Vaughan Oliver’s album artwork, according to a press release, the video “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.”
