The incredible influence of the Pixies can be felt in the reverberations of bands like Nirvana, The Strokes, and even contemporaries like Trampled by Turtles. Whether paying direct homage to the Pixies or taking cues from their manipulation of abrasive sounds, bands continue to utilize the Pixies’ springy aggression. Their formation in 1986 put them at the tail end of 80’s alt-punk and in view of the foundations of grunge. The Pixies’ sound is, therefore, quite outside any description by genre and exists as its own entity in punk and alternative rock, housing a fascinating array of curling tempos and mansions of aural discombobulations. Original success was greater in Europe, but the long-lasting effects of the Pixies inspirational style are becoming ever more noticeable in today’s music.
