The Smile Share Video for New Song ‘Thin Thing’

    The Smile have shared a video for ‘Thin Thing’, the latest single from their upcoming album A Light For Attracting Attention. The visual was directed by Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña, who crafted it over a period of six months. Watch and listen below.

    “Hearing the song for the first time, we imagined a frenetic fluid that carries machines, pieces of human bodies and carnivorous plants,” the directors explained. “When presenting the idea to the band, Thom told us about a dream that made him write the song. We believe the video is the conjunction of these two things.”

    The project of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood and Sons of Kemet’s Tom Skinner, the Smile will release their debut album on May 13 via XL Recordings. So far, they’ve previewed it with the singles ‘You Will Never Work in Television Again’, ‘The Smoke’, ‘Skrting On The Surface’, ‘Pana-vision’, and ‘Free in the Knowledge’.
