Pixies share video for first new single in two years ‘Human Crime’

Pixies have shared a video for their first new single in two years, “Human Crime.”

On “Human Crime,” vocalist Black Francis reflects on an old relationship. Throughout the tune, he delivers lines like, “Went by your place/ There was nobody there.” The accompanying video was directed by band member and bassist Paz Lenchantin. Lenchantin has played with the Pixies since 2014. The video was filmed at the abandoned bunkers in San Pedro and Santa Monica’s Gold Diggers Bar in LA.

“The storyline is loosely based on an ‘inside joke’ between Charles [Thompson] and I about going on tour,” Lenchantin says. “How we go through a door from our reality state into the altered state of becoming and being a Pixie.”

Watch the video for “Human Crime” below.

“Human Crime” marks the Pixies’ second new single since 2019’s Beneath The Eyrie, following 2020’s “Hear Me Out.”
