The Smile have shared their Tiny Desk concert in full.
The project – helmed by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood, alongside jazz drummer Tom Skinner – released their debut LP in 2022, achieving across the board rave reviews. It’s proved to be a group in evolution, however, with live shows displaying a willingness to stretch the source material to breaking point.
Dropping in new songs as and when they are written, The Smile closed 2022 by dropping past NPR to record a Tiny Desk session.
An internet staple, the full performance is now online, edited down from a 90 minute “casual rehearsal” that took over the broadcaster’s offices, it shows The Smile at full pelt.
A fantastic performance you can check it out in full below.
