Pixies Reveal Animated Video for New Single ‘Catfish Kate’
Pixies are starting to roll out the music for their upcoming album, Beneath the Eyrie, unveiling a brand new animated music video for "Catfish Kate," their first radio single for the new album.
The clip was created by Krank! Collective utilizing a variety of handmade and digital animation techniques, including old school light box, painted animation, rotoscoping and digital composition. Check out the creative video which encapsulates the bizarre tale of a mountain woman's task to catch a fish for dinner.
