Thom Yorke - "Suspirium"

Today, Thom Yorke, front man for mega indie legends Radiohead, released the first track to his film score for the upcoming Suspiria remake. Although I've been fairly neutral with all things Radiohead, I was actually quite interested to hear what a Yorke-penned film score would sound like.

And upon first listen, it sounds pretty much like a Radiohead song. But that may not be a bad thing. The track itself is hauntingly melancholic, with minimal piano and flute tracks to support Yorke's signature lyrical sound.

After a few listens, I began to wonder how this track would fit into what looks like an incredibly dark, tense and muted film. It should be very interesting to see how this helps set the tone, and I'm really interested to hear more.

Yorke's Suspiria (Music For The Luca Guadagnino Film) is available for pre-order now at XL Recordings.
