Almost a decade after they first reunited, and 22 years after their final album Trompe Le Monde, the Pixies are back with a brand-new studio release, with absolutely no warning, and you can buy the fucker now. On the band’s website, they’re selling a new EP called EP-1 — a title that suggests there’s even more of this on the way. They recorded it in Wales, with Gil Norton producing and someone called Ding playing bass. “Bagboy,” the new song that the band released earlier this summer, isn’t on the EP. Instead, all four songs are brand-new. And one of them, “Indie Cindy,” already has a music video. The song swings back and forth between classic Black Francis ranting and sudden spangly beauty, and on first listen, it’s easily the best song that the Pixies have put together since reuniting. The song’s video, from directors Lamar + Nik, jumps around temporally to tell a murder story. Watch the video and check out the EP’s tracklist below.
01 “Andro Queen”
02 “Another Toe In The Ocean”
03 “Indie Cindy”
04 “What Goes Boom”
