Atoms For Peace – “Default”

By Tom Breihan / September 6, 2012 - 11:44 am

This morning, Thom Yorke’s band Atoms For Peace, which also includes Flea and Nigel Godrich, surprised the world by releasing a new single called “Default” on iTunes. It’s an oceanic but anxious thing, running on off-kilter electronic blips but still keeping some of Yorke’s sense of the huge. Hear the track below.

“Default” is available now at iTunes.

UPDATE: Album on the way! Here’s the announcement via Dead Air Space:

You may have heard that I have a new project called Atoms for Peace.

The name comes from some shows of The Eraser that happened a couple of years ago with Mauro, Joey, Nigel and Flea.

We got a big buzz from them and discovered loads of energy from transforming the music from electronic to live, and so afterwards, we carried on for a few days in the studio and decided to make it a loose, on-going thing.
Immersed in the area between the two…electronic and live.

The first tune we’d like you to hear is Default
A 12″ vinyl version will follow next month and an album will eventually follow that next year.
