The Smile: Wall of Eyes [XL]

The Smile Wall of Eyes

Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, and Tom Skinner return for their second full-length album as the Smile. Wall of Eyes goes deeper into the band’s subconscious, both lyrically and musically. The trio explores jazz and prog with a light touch, bending these songs into strange places that never feel eerie, just enchanting. As singles “Friend of a Friend” and “Bending Hectic” made clear, Yorke and Greenwood sound as relaxed in their latest project as they do energized, and Skinner is letting curiosity guide his movements. The Smile isn’t a Radiohead side-project as much as it is an outlet for nurtured experimentation and growth, and Wall of Eyes is proof.
