Frank Black Duo Grand Duchy Debut Warhol-Infused ‘Silver Boys’ Video
Frank Black and wife Violet Clark will release 'Let the People Speak' on April 10
All that’s missing is the Campbell’s Soup. Pixies frontman Frank Black and his wife, Violet Clark, make a whole bunch of direct allusions to Andy Warhol in “Silver Boys,” the propulsive, synth-buzzing advance track from their upcoming second album as Grand Duchy, titled Let the People Speak (out April 10). Directed by Art Brut and Los Campesinos! video whiz Alex de Campi for production company gravitysleeps, the “Silver Boys” clip drives home the Warhol connection even further, featuring Black and Clark amid Warhol-style imagery, Warhol quotes, and plenty of hedonistic scenes worthy of the artist’s old Factory stomping grounds. Turns out LCD Soundsystem weren’t the only ones familiar with the sound of silver.
