That Thom Yorke is always up to something interesting. Following the release of his solo record The Eraser he gathered together a team of musicians to help perform the album live, and from that was born the idea for Atoms For Peace. After two years of working on the album AMOK was released on Tuesday along with a brand new video for their song “Ingenue.”
THe video was directed by Hammer & Tongs, music video extraordinaires who’ve directed their fair share of amazing music videos (Blur’s “Coffee & TV” anyone?). For the video Thom Yorke does pretty great dances alongside Fukiko Takase, though I’m not sure which is meant to be the ingenue. It still cracks me up that Thom Yorke loves to dance so much. He’s done it forever in his live performances and now it’s transferred into the videos he’s in as well (you saw Radiohead’s video for “Lotus Flower” right?). Anyhow, the song is pretty great, like a more structured version of something from The Eraser, and the video is definitely fun to watch.
