The Pixie’s “Where Is My Mind?” has been rising in popularity again, thanks to TikTok. Now, thanks to Tkay Maidza, the Pixie classic is sonically modernized. This Zimbabwe-born rapper previously finished three albums (with a fourth on the way), collaborated with Troye Sivan on his album Blue Neighborhood and toured with Charli XCX.
With Maidza’s cover of “Where Is My Mind?”, the song’s genre is bent between alternative hip-hop and synthetic rock. It’s definitely one of the most creative reworkings of the Pixies’ most popular song, with synth and guitar reworkings to fully cash in on this spiraling effect that the original “Where Is My Mind?” had created. This, and Maidza’s music video that features waves on a loop, pair well together to make this spiral effect come full circle. The music video is produced by Dan Farber and is included below.
