Pixies – Um Chagga Lagga | New Music

Pixies 06.07.2016ANDREW


Pixies are due a new album, to be named Head Carrier. Out Friday, September 30, the new album is their second since reforming in 2013, and their first with new full-time bassist, Paz Lenchantin. Lead single, “Um Chagga Lagga”, potentially propels the band into the listening of an entirely new generation alien to their most lauded works.


“Um Chagga Lagga” opens acoustically, before the distorted guitars take the listener by surprise. It definitely has a no compromises, punk feel to it. It breaks down for the drums to crash, and then the guitars wail, high octane. Some strange vocals make no attempt to be tuneful and, in the popular sense, conventional.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
