New Radiohead stuff! The band released an app dubbed PolyFauna with little fanfare today, posting a typically minimal entry to their blog. Thom Yorke writes that the work, which was produced in collaboration with the British design house Universal Everything, “comes from an interest in early computer life-experiments and the imagined creatures of our subconscious.”
Opening PolyFauna places you into one of several supremely Stanley Donwood-ian hellscapes, where you’re free to wander around or follow a floating red dot and be guided to the next stage, while fractured bits of “Bloom,” from King of Limbs, play in the background. The first area I got, pictured above, looks like a green version of Donwood’s iconic Kid A cover. Get it for iOS here and Android here.
