Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool, their ninth studio album and their first since 2011’s The King Of Limbs, has been one of the best records in a 2016 absolutely full of amazing records. The promotion behind it went to utterly enormous lengths to provide fans with not just another album, but a true experience both sonically and visually. To that end, the music video for Daydreaming, one of the standout tracks from that album, will be screened for the very first time in Australia at this year’s CLIPPED Music Video Festival.
The video for Daydreaming was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, a man for whom Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood has scored several films including There Will Be Blood and Inherent Vice, stars frontman Thom Yorke and is simply breathtaking. The CLIPPED screening will be in glorious 35mm print for maximum visual stimulation. Watch the original (in comparatively crummy but still fantastic YouTube quality) below:
The festival, the only dedicated music video festival in Australia, will be held at the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia in Canberra on September 30, along with plenty more music videos, VJs, DJs and guest speakers there for discussion. The festival will also be headlined by a secret artist, to be confirmed in the future and headlining via what CLIPPED are calling a ‘real-time electronic video collaboration’.
Fans of Radiohead and fans of music in cinematic form will not want to miss out on a festival like CLIPPED. Tickets are on sale now via the NFSA.
