Radiohead’s new song came out a day after they all but vanished from the internet, and it did not disappoint. Of course it didn’t. This is Radiohead. It has a lot of the disconnected vibes as found in King of Limbs, but it’s definitely more like a song that belongs on one of their earlier albums, but nothing pre Kid A.
I love that it’s a bit more rock oriented from recent offerings, but I also like that it’s chock full of ambient noise, and the cryptic lyrics scream radiohead through and through. The sweeping strings, the drum beats, and Thom Yorke’s free-wheeling vocals flying up to the heavens, really make this a solid first single from their new album. It won’t be long now till the album arrives….
