Cor, love that. Sorta wish it went to the ‘next level’ but even so… it’s a hit from me!

Not a huge Radiohead fan, but I really liked that.
The video is wonderful – really caught the Murray/Hardwick/Bura animation style of Camberwick Green et al.

Wow. I fully expected (see previous thread) that to be wank. It wasn’t. It was rather great. How exciting.

Going to be old fashioned and wait for the album …

I succumbed and watched the video. Slightly underwhelmed, but maybe it’s a “grower”

That was really good. But it’s also made me realise that I cannot bloody stand his voice.

Yes. Contrary to my own expectations, I did like it. But I’d like it a lot more if it was an instrumental.

I fell out of love with Radiohead a good while ago but that’s definitely hit the spot for me. There’s a warmth within the experimental art that’s been hard to find in recent albums. Oddly enough it reminds me of Mansun more than anyone else.

Marvellous! Loving that head voice (as opposed to falsetto)!
03/05/2016 at 19:49
I hear falsetto.
03/05/2016 at 21:26
I think it’s all head. I don’t think his lateral chords vibrate. It doesn’t leap that high. It’s a bit like Stevie Wonder. He can sing high but he never sings falsetto (I’m taking a risk with that ‘never’ but I can’t think of any). Thom can sing falsetto alright but I don’t think he does on this track.

Yay! I like that a lot. Hopefully a good omen for the album…

Stuck with them and bought every album, including Thom Yorke solo, and wondered why I bothered on the last few (In Rainbows sort of excepted). This though is great.

God, I love that. His voice is as beautiful as ever, the video is all creepy British animation & the music thrums with dread. I couldn’t be more delighted.

Never understood Radiohead whatsoever. Not saying they are not any good, just they have passed me by completely. This video is extremely clever but to me soulless. My loss I am sure….
03/05/2016 at 21:24
for those not familiar with Trumptonshire 😉
03/05/2016 at 21:32
Goodness me, that’s pretty good.
Like others, I had lost interest in ver Head (for reasons which should be obvious to anyone with functioning ears), but that augers well for the new album.
Can’t be arsed with all that ‘it’s not really marketing’ marketing pish, though.

How about yodelling instead of wailing? That might be interesting.

Colin phones Phil.
“Hey Phil, I’ve just discovered that we’ve recorded a new song.”
“Really? What does it sound like?”
“Have you told Ed yet?”
04/05/2016 at 14:05
Read somewhere that Colin wrote it.

I really like this, has a classic Radiohead feel and the video is somewhat creepy. Like others, I’ve kept up with Radiohead, but not really loved their last few albums.

Nice wee tune. I like the video, but they blow it in the last two seconds with that glib comedy ending! It’s quite creepy up to then.

Even louder Radiohead klaxon – new album released digitally THIS SUNDAY!!!!!

As it happens, I bought a jacket like that from TK Max. It was a bargain.
