Rolling Stone reports Atoms for Peace, Thom Yorke’s electro-rock supergroup that includes Red Hot Chili Pepper bassist Flea and producer extraordinaire Nigel Godrich, finally released a single for music fans. “Default” was loaded up to Itunes a few days ago and according to the music mag, is a “complicated track: over a drum pattern that skips and skitters, the synths swell to near-seismic levels while retaining a calm that matches Yorke’s ever-haunting croon.” We find it rather surprising that Flea didn’t jump on the Radiohead stage at Bonnaroo for a little mini-jam of the band.
The band has been jamming for a few years now, with reports of spectacular live shows in smaller Los Angeles venues, which created a big buzz. They carried it into the studio and according to Yorke, have been “immersed in the area between electronic and live.”
The song is on Itunes now. For more info on the band or to tell them how great it sounds, see their site WeAllWantSomeone.org. They plan to release a full-length album sometime in 2013.
