A review of the Radiohead song “Burn The Witch.”

 

Radiohead certainly have a knack for suddenly appearing out of thin air and release groundbreaking, innovative music.

Following a cryptic and enigmatic disappearance from the web, the band finally released their highly anticipated first single since 2011's "The King Of Limbs."


Previously teased by the band's producer as "Something like you've never heard before", the new track is indeed a fairly new concept for the band, although the sonic characteristics are not dramatically divergent from the past. Thom Yorke and company continue on their quest to bridge the gaps between alternative rock and electronic, but "Burn The Witch" pushes the vision over the edge by replacing the typical rock band set up with a full-on orchestral score.


Vintage drum machine and retro moog bass lines blend in with strings and Thom Yorke's unmistakable voice in a very otherworldly way. The sound feels lush and atmospheric, but not necessarily drone-driven.


This song paves the way to "A Moon Shaped Pool", the album which was released just a few days after the single.
