Radiohead

first_imgConsidering the anticipation that has been attached to the new Radiohead material, for those of us who haven’t been bothered to download it already, the new single ‘There There’ is a disappointment. Thom York’s signature whine saves the song from sounding like a Talking Heads cover of an Oasis song, but ultimately that seems the more attractive concept. You simply can’t decipher what the hell he’s droning on about; York is almost becoming a self-parody. ‘There There’ lacks any identity as a song, and sounds distressingly like a filler. One interesting chord-change is not enough to hide the fact that this song is thoroughly dull.ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2003last_img
