Radiohead – Present Tense

Radiohead have released a video for ‘Present Tense’ a track from this year’s A Moon Shaped Pool.

The video, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (who also produced the clip for ‘Daydreaming’) features just Jonny Greenwood and Thom Yorke performing with a CR-78 drum machine.

The stripped-down beauty of the track on the video harks back to the basis upon which Radiohead have always existed; great songs, and great musicisianship.

Both are on display here. Click below to watch.

  1. Quite like it but I dare say that not many people would watch this right to the end were it not for past glories etc…

      Thanks for the comment. Is that because their “current glories” don’t stack up or because the video just doesn’t quite cut it?
