Thom Yorke’s son Noah shares atmospheric Radiohead track Trying Too Hard
Noah Yorke – the son of Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke – shared his new song, Strangely Atmospheric Trying too hard (lullaby).
While the guitarist / singer has released music previously under the name of Alec Owen and LETHAL, most recently arriving as the eponymous 10 track album from last year, Trying too hard (lullaby) marks the first time Yorke has shared music under her own name.
The texturally rich track itself is what you would expect from someone who has been heavily exposed to Radiohead’s sonic world: a captivating electric guitar motif, haunting vocal line, and a kaleidoscopic soundscape comprising layer upon layer. dissonant but smooth background lines.
It’s an impressive start for Yorke’s new music project – one that has already caught the attention of his father’s Radiohead bandmate, Jonny Greenwood.
“Horn, what a glorious piece of music,” Greenwood tweeted. “Today was the first time I heard it, and I’m so impressed. Nice work, Noah.
Writing on social media ahead of the track’s release, Yorke admitted that this was the first song from “a new solo project that I’ve wanted to launch for a very long time,” and that the track “means the world to me. “.
