WATCH: Find Out “What Goes Boom” In This New Pixies Music Video

By Staff, Directed by Jonathan Furmanski and Matthew Galkin on November 19, 2013

 

 

Our new cover stars, Pixies, are finding their sound again with a new batch of music and a new lineup. We're stoked to see that they have a new video for their single, "What Goes Boom," and we're hoping more will be in store for us in the future.

 

The song itself, one of four from EP1, is a straightforward guitar and bass heavy track that can't help but grab your attention. The guitar riffs--influenced surprisingly by heavy metal--are what drive the song apparently penned about Kim Deal's departure from the group. After you watch this video full of gorgeous landscapes (and an almost inevitable/satisfying "boom"), you might think that Pixies frontman Black Francis is going to have to start writing a new song about the untimely end of the band's guitarist Joey Santiago... Find out just how all that goes down by watching the video above.
