PIXIES release video for 'Tenement Song'

PIXIES
RELEASE "TENEMENT SONG", FIRST MUSIC VIDEO
FOR UPCOMING ALBUM HEAD CARRIER
The music video for "Tenement Song" makes is bow today as the first music video for the Pixies' upcoming album Head Carrier, due out September 30 (Pixiesmusic/Play It Again Sam).  You can view the video HERE; the song can be streamed/purchased HERE.
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.
