The Pixies managed to sneakily release their new single Bag Boy, without it being leaked or making headlines before the release which is quite a feat in today’s world of constant information.

Pixies: Bag Boy

The new single came as a surprise to most people being their first music video since 1997 and their first single since 2004. The single has the trade mark Black Francis speech like delivery over a loud guitar driven track with influences from Hip Hop and Electro something akin to LCD Soundsystem.The release of a new Pixies song really shows their influence on so many modern bands including the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, Arctic Monkeys. The shouted delivery of lyrics from Black Francis like a man with a megaphone at a public rally, contrast to the direct flow of music underneath on top of a steady hip hop beat to the drums.

In other fantastic news the Pixies have announced that they are to return to the Olympia Theatre on November 18th. I’m sure that will be a gig to sell out in minutes.
