The Breeders Share New Video (Directed By Richard Ayoade)

Richard Ayoade, the  film director (Submarine, The Double), actor (IT Crowd, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace), TV presenter (Travel Man, The Crystal Maze) and comedian, has been a long-time fan of The Breeders. Today, he has teamed up with his favourite band to create an eerie short story for their latest single, “Spacewoman“.

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.

Watch the video below.

“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.
