Pixies are back!

He’s had to tone down his vocal range, age I imagine is catching up with Black Francis’ vocal chords. On Graveyard Hill thus starts in a rather toned down formulaic fashion. However a minute in, just as you were beginning to wonder, a tsunami of excitement, melody and chaos kicks in. The fuzzed guitars and bass are unmistakably passionate, a shot of adrenaline, a call to war to an army of goosebumps. It wouldn’t at all be out of place in the early 90s, the era which belongs to Pixies. I even detected the fullsome buzz of Sugar, brother-in-arms of the then big ‘fuck off indie rock’ sound.

Pixies’ new studio album, Beneath the Eyrie’, will be released September 13th 2019. Pre-orders for these items can be placed at
