The Smile have already put out one of the year’s best albums in A Light For Attracting Attention. The trio consists of singer Thom Yorke, multi-instrumentalist Johnny Greenwood, and drummer Tom Skinner, and it’s not a far cry to consider them just “Radiohead in disguise.” Their music is definitely fodder for the insatiable appetite of Radiohead fans and according to Yorke, there is more of it on the horizon.
The band tweeted out a live performance video of a song called “Colours Fly” on Sunday, which they debuted at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival last month. Along with the preview clip in the tweet, was a link to a high quality youtube video of the performance. Yorke quoted retweeted the band’s tweet, saying, “new one … work in progress … there are a few ..”
