The Pixies Release Official Video For “Magdalena”

pixiesmagdalenabanner

Alt-rock group The Pixies have released an official video for “Magdalena”, their second video from their EP 2. Directed by Judy Jacob, the video stars British dance/theater/performance artist Nando Messias who dresses in drag, walks around town, showers in rice, and beats up random guys to take their sandwich. Yeah, that about sums it up.

The band’s Black Francis describes the song, saying it’s “…basically a blues-shape with a Beatles-esque left turn, and a lot of Pixies-referential lyrics.”

Check out the video below.
