Watch: Pixies’ video for “Greens and Blues” is a Sci-Fi adventure

on March 04, 2014, 10:12am

If an intelligent life form ever landed on planet Earth, I’d hope they meet a scientist or some kind of civil rights activist. Ever the realists, though, Pixies display a more likely scenario in their video for “Greens and Blues”. Directed by Josh Frank, the clip portrays a celestial being’s fall to Earth and her crucial first interaction with a representative of our planet: a schlubby graffiti artist who looks like he could be Frank Black’s younger brother (Eustice Black, I imagine). Not sure what the alien’s report would read when she heads back to Blorgos-6, but hopefully her immersion in the art and beauty of our little speck of dust would prevent mass extinction via death ray. Slap on those space helmets and watch below.

“Greens and Blues” is off the recently released EP-2 In continued support, the band has announced new tour dates stretching this summer and fall. Consult the full schedule below.
