Pixies - Hear Me Out/Mambo Sun EP (Yellow Vinyl)
Pixies release a limited edition double A-side single. Pressed on 12” yellow vinyl, it features the new track Hear Me Out alongside the band’s gritty interpretation of the T-Rex classic Mambo Sun. Hear Me Out represents the first new material from Pixies since the release of their seventh album Beneath The Eyrie last year, which entered the UK official album charts at #7. The song offers a brighter contrast to the previous record’s foreboding ambience, with bassist Paz Lenchantin’s honeyed, hypnotic vocals delivering a message that has grown in relevance since it was written. Delivering melody and visceral power in equal measure, it captures the Pixies’ classic style, and is elevated with a spaghetti western-style guitar motif courtesy of Joey Santiago. The song was written by frontman Black Francis and Lenchantin at Dreamland Studios during sessions for Beneath The Eyrie, with production courtesy of the Grammy-nominated Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Ghost, etc.).
