Cool, New Pixies Song: "On Graveyard Hill" (Video)

.... Almost sounds like an outtake from the original Pixies!

I'm a HUGE fan of the original Pixies and was super-excited when they got back together, but have been less excited about their new stuff with Paz (who I previously liked a lot from Zwan and elsewhere).

This new song is pretty good; however... A return to form? It seems so. It does remind me a lot of the classic Pixies.

They've got a new album Beneath The Eyrie coming out September 13, 2019 on BMG and if this song is any indication of their "new" sound, it's going to be an album people will like a lot, including me.
