The Smile “Skrting On The Surface” [♬]

Any Radiohead fans here? The Smile are an English rock band comprising Radiohead members Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood and Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner. They are produced by Nigel Godrich, Radiohead’s longtime producer.

The Smile worked during the COVID-19 lockdowns and made their surprise debut in a performance streamed by Glastonbury Festival in May 2021. Jonny Greenwood said the Smile came from his desire to work with Thom Yorke during the COVID-19 lockdown;

“We didn’t have much time, but we just wanted to finish some songs together. It’s been very stop-start, but it’s felt a happy way to make music.” ~JG

In early 2022, they released four singles and performed to an audience for the first time at three shows in London in January, which were livestreamed. The Smile are set to begin a European tour in May 2022.
