Written, storyboarded, produced and directed by Pixies frontman Black Francis, “Um Chagga Lagga,” the new music video for the band’s album
Head Carrier (released September 30/Pixiesmusic/Play It Again Sam), makes its premiere today. True to the song’s esoteric storyline, the part concept, part performance video is infused with a rousing, old-school Pixies urgency. You can view the video here.
Working with French filmmaker Louis Collins, Black Francis chose Toulouse, France as the video’s location, incorporating its scenic countrysides.
