“Pana-Vision,” is the fourth and newest offering from The Smile a/k/a Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood and Tom Skinner. An animation by Sabrina Nichols of artwork from artist Stanley Donwood is also shared today to accompany the ‘Pana-vision’ release. The trio’s latest single was featured on the latest episode of Peaky Blinders, and is now available at your favourite streaming service and XL Recordings.
While “Pana-vision” was likely identifiable to sonically savvy Peaky Blinders viewers as the latest from The Smile, the same episode premiered a sublime, Satie-esque instrumental piece that the keenest of ears might recognise as the work of Thom Yorke: “That’s How Horses Are” is now available as the second half of a single featuring the recently released “5:17.”
The Smile’s latest single follows last month’s release of “ Skrting on the Surface ,” accompanied by a video shot in 16mm black and white by BAFTA-winning writer / director Mark Jenkin in Cornwall’s disused Rosevale Tin Mine , and hand developed in water from the mine. Previously, The Smile released “ The Smoke ” and an accompanying remix by Dennis Bovell, as well as “ You Will Never Work In Television Again. ”
