PIXIES

Hear Me Out / Mambo Sun

BMG



limited yellow 12"

Released: 16th Oct 2020

£11.99


Featuring a gritty interpretation of the T-Rex classic ‘Mambo Sun’, the single offers a brighter contrast to the previous record’s foreboding ambience, with bassist Paz Lenchantin’s honeyed, hypnotic vocals delivering a message that has grown in relevance since it was written.

Delivering melody and visceral power in equal measure, it captures the PIXIES’ classic style, and is elevated with a spaghetti western-style guitar motif courtesy of Joey Santiago. “Black started the melody phrases on an old organ. I loved it right away, so he asked me to take a pass at the lyrics. The song has an evocative melody that inspired the lyrics to come out straight away.” Joey Santiago added, “Paz sounds like she’s talking to a guy with deaf ears. I did a western style riff at the end of verses, which was like giving her a gun so the dude would pay attention.”
