The animated new music video for “Catfish Kate”, the first radio single from Pixies’ studio album Beneath The Eyrie due out September 13th (BMG), ventures deep into the imagination of the band’s main lyricist Black Francis. The clip weaves the bizarre lyrical and visual tale of mountain woman Kate’s simple task to catch a fish for that night’s dinner, and what occurs that has her known forever after as ‘Catfish Kate’. You can view the video below.
The clip was created by the UK/European-based Krank! Collective who also produced the animated video for Pixies’ “Tenement Song”. Krank!’s Neirin Best and Lianne Pierce created the “Catfish Kate” video using a variety of handmade and digital animation techniques, including old school light box, painted animation, rotoscoping and digital compositing.
I'm a photojournalist who is passionate about music. I love the adrenaline of shooting live concerts. Photography has given me the opportunity to photograph some of today's most legendary bands, and entertainers. When I'm not photographing music you can find me on the runway shooting New York and Philadelphia Fashion Week.
