Luke Bather - 5th June 2017

Michal Marczak returns to collaborate once again with Thom Yorke in this previously unheard Radiohead track from the OK Computer era.

Marking his third collaboration with Thom Yorke (the other two being Radiohead's noirish Indentikit short and the haunting marriage of nature and futurism for Mark Pritchard & Thom Yorke's Beautiful People), Marczak continues to explore those uncanny futurist themes here in the haunting clip for I Promise. We follow a discarded animatronic head, left on the seat of a bus and gazing out of the window. As the lone android makes eye contact with passersby, we see him react more so than the humans he's faced with. Through the lens of artificial life, we are forced to look at context-free human actions in a bizarre and disconnected way.
