Radiohead Spin-off ‘The Smile’ Release Final Single


Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood have splintered off to start a new band with Sons of Kemet (Brit jazz group) drummer Tom Skinner, and today they released a new single from their upcoming album.

The band is called The Smile, and their debut album, A Light for Attracting Attention, comes out on Friday the 13th of May (this Friday). ‘Thin Thing’ is the sixth and final single The Smile has released in the lead-up to the record, and I have to say, it’s quite Radioheady. And why wouldn’t it be? And anyway, that’s a good thing, because Radiohead fans would be pretty bummed if The Smile actually made music to make you smile, instead of making you feel alienated and alone and kinda sad and worried. Check out the song and Cristóbal León/Joaquín Cociña-directed video below.
