Shortly after bassist Kim Deal’s departure, the Pixies released a new single and video, titled “”Bagboy, last month. The track was the group’s first new material since 2004, and now it seems as if they’re trying to make up for lost time. A second “Bagboy” video was released this morning.
According to Rolling Stone, the dark, trippy clip was created by Kestrel Media and inspired by an art piece from Vaughan Oliver, who designed the single’s artwork. 3D versions of Oliver’s sketches are played throughout the video and interspersed with old TV clips.
“We didn’t set out to have two music videos for ‘Bagboy,’ but once we saw both of these, we knew we didn’t want to use just one,” Black Francis told Rolling Stone. “They’re so good, so creative, and each in its own way, and both made by up-and-coming filmmakers.”
While Francis categorizes the first “Bagboy” video as “over-the-top outrageous,” the singer describes the follow-up video as “really in keeping with Vaughn Oliver’s artwork and character of ‘Bagboy,’” adding, “And look, who says you can’t have two videos for a song that show two completely different perspectives? Not us.”
