Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, Pixies need little introduction.
Combining jagged, roaring guitars and stop-start dynamics with melodic pop hooks, intertwining male-female harmonies, and evocative, cryptic lyrics, Pixies, are one of alternative rock’s most influential bands.
With seven epic studio albums under their belts which started out with the landmark album, ‘Surfer Rosa’, Pixies are renowned for turning musical conventions inside-out, melding punk and indie guitar rock, classic pop, surf rock, and stadium-sized riffs with singer/guitarist Black Francis’ bizarre, fragmented lyrics about space, religion, sex, mutilation, and pop culture.
From grunge to Brit-pop, Pixies’ shadow loomed large; it’s hard to imagine Nirvana without Pixies’ signature loud-quiet-loud dynamics and lurching, noisy guitar solos.
Their latest album, 2019’s masterpiece, ‘Beneath the Eyrie’, demonstrates a new dawn for the band and will be a worthy heavyweight addition to the Bingley Weekender line up.
