Richard Ayoade, the BAFTA-nominated film director, actor, TV presenter and comedian, has been a long-time fan of The Breeders. As a young teen in 1990, Ayoade recalls travelling from his Ipswich home to London to buy the band’s first album Pod. Today, nearly 30 years after making that journey, he has teamed up with his favourite band to create an eerie short story for their latest single, ‘Spacewoman’. Watch below!
Described by The Breeders’ Kim Deal as “a sci-fi thriller with the soul of [deceased New Wave fiction writer] Harlan Ellison,” Ayoade’s visual treatment depicts Deal in a spacesuit navigating a woodland landscape. Shot on 35mm film and in one seamless take, she encounters fellow Breeders members Jim Macpherson, Josephine Wiggs and Kelley Deal in various states of trauma.
‘Spacewoman’ is taken from The Breeder’s latest album All Nerve, their first album in a decade and their first in 25 years reuniting the iconic Last Splash line-up of the aforementioned Deal sisters, Wiggs and Macpherson.
The Breeders return to down under for Fairgrounds Festival, Meredith Music Festival and a full run of sideshows this November and December. Don’t miss the chance to catch this iconic band during their Australian tour. Full tour dates and ticket details below!
