It Will Attract Your Attention – THE SMILE Debut With A Great RADIOHEAD Album

14 May 2022

Supergroup THE SMILE featuring radioheads Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood
and Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner have their long-awaited debut LP
out and it’s no less than prodigious.

It could have been, easily, a new Radiohead LP. Entracing and
riveting with Thom Yorke at its feverish and vulnerable best.

Except for some amazeballs cherry bombs (You Will Never Work In Television Again / Thin Thing and We Don’t Know What Tomorrow Brings) Yorke comes up with characteristic slo-mo Radiohead musings. It sounds both familiar and astounding.

First-class work. Enough lights to attract my attention

Pitchfork says: “The debut from Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, and drummer Tom Skinner’s new group is instantly, unmistakably the best album yet by a Radiohead side project… At 53, Yorke has seen them all. And once again, he’s battling the absurdity of existence the only way he knows how: by offering a salve for his anxieties without letting anyone off the hook for turning everything we hold dear into one big joke.” Score: 8.5/10.

Key singles/clips: Thin Thing / Free In The Knowledge
