Pixies have unveiled the video for ‘Greens and Blues’, the latest released from their recent EP 2.

Speaking about his inspiration for the video, writer and director Josh Frank (author of Fool The World: the Oral History of the Band Called Pixies), said

“I chose ‘Greens and Blues’ specifically because it touched me and spoke to me, from the moment I first heard it.  It had that power and emotion I remember from when I heard Bossanova for the first time in high school, that immediate connection, that very personal moment with a band you love where the song feels like it is speaking just to you.  ‘Greens and Blues’ also feels important, iconic, and timeless like all great Pixies songs.”

The video stars Mel Rodriguez (Little Miss Sunshine, Panic Room) as the last man on Earth, who sees ours as a lost civilization, and records its history in anticipation of our eventual return.

Pixies will play a headline slot at Manchester’s Summer in the City on July 10th.
