It would be impossible to mention Lotus Flower - the first track to be revealed from The King Of Limbs - without mentioning that video. Four minutes of Thom Yorke dancing, in an equally mesmerising and terrifying manner, alone in a Warehouse wearing a vaguely comedy hat.
Possibly our favourite music video of 2011 so far. Expertly choreographed by the English National Ballet’s Wayne McGregor and even more expertly remixed by the good people of the internet.
Video aside, we actually got our first taste of Lotus Flower when footage emerged online of Thom Yorke performing it as a solo acoustic number at a Haiti earthquake benefit back in January 2010.
The album version is another great example of Radiohead pulling influences from electronic music. The brooding bassline and electronic kicks bring to mind LA producer Flying Lotus, who Thom Yorke has recently collaborated with (although we think the name similarity is just a coincidence).
