Atoms for Peace – “Before Your Very Eyes”

220px-AtomsforamokAtoms for Peace may be one of the best secret side projects ever created. This band is made up mainly of Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Flea, and Joey Waronker of R.E.M. They formed in 2009 as a sort of “experimental” rock group. In fact, back then, they didn’t even have a formal band name. It appeared as “???” on venue marquees or just simply as “Thom Yorke.” This song, titled “Before Your Very Eyes…” was one of their singles, and it might even be my favorite off the album. The guitar riff that is repeated throughout makes this one very addictive song.  As many Radiohead fans know, Thom Yorke’s amazing falsetto style voice could make anything sound good. And if that wasn’t enough, the music video for this incredible song is perhaps one of the best music videos I have ever seen. It is directed beautifully and animated so perfectly. Their Debut album, Amok, released on February 25, 2013, so maybe consider this post an early 1 year anniversary gift.
