Video: Atoms for Peace’s “Ingenue”
Atoms for Peace (Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, producer Nigel Godrich, and drummer Joey Waronker) unveiled the video for “Ingenue,” off AFP’s debut Amok, released February 25. Directed by Garth Jennings, the video features Yorke and dancer Fukiko Takase performing a choreography by Wayne McGregor. If you think you’ve seen this somewhere, it is no coincidence: Jennings and McGregor were behind Radiohead’s “Lotus Flower” video.
After selling out London’s Oval Space last Friday, Yorke and Godrich will play, according to Yorke’s Twitter account, with “two turntables & a microphone” at Berlin’s Berghain (3/8) and New York (Le Poisson Rouge, 3/14). The shows will also feature the full band and special guests.
Also coming up for the full band: appearances at Slovakia’s Podha Festival (7/12), Serbia’s Exit Festival (7/10-14), and Germany’s Melt Festival (7/19-21).
