Radiohead 'Daydreaming' by Paul Thomas Anderson

Luke Bather - 9th May 2016

A mere three days after their last offering - the hypnotic Trumpton and Wicker Man-referencing Burn The Witch video – Radiohead continue the push around their new album A Moon Shaped Pool by giving us this gorgeous, sleepy video for Daydreaming.

Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (director remarkable movies such as MagnoliaThere Will Be Blood,The Master and Inherent Vice) it follows Thom Yorke as he meanders through doorways into a disconnected series of locations searching for something. Anything, really. 

It's a simple and beautiful meditation that fits well into the PT Anderson music video ouevre of 'not much happens, really... but maybe actually everything happens and the experience is totally subjective and therefore yours to glean. It's bloody nice to look at though.' Which is essentially the feeling you get from watching this, or the video he made last year for Joanna Newsom's Sapokanikan.

However you feel about it, the seamless cuts between such contrasting locations is still a stunning thing to observe.
