After a fantastic concert with Atoms for Peace, THOM YORKE will return to Pohoda in 2020, this time with the THOM YORKE Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes project. Performing works spanning his solo career THOM YORKE will be joined by legendary producer Nigel Godrich, and visual artist Tarik Barri.
This is the earliest confirmed big name in the history of Pohoda festival. In early August he released his third solo album Anima. According to Denník N, “he was looking for a soul and found a new beginning” on it. The newspaper further states: “Anima by Radiohead’s frontman belongs to the best you can listen to this summer.” British newspaper The Telegraph rated the album with a 10/10 score and described it a bleak dystopian rhapsody that you can actually dance to.
The reasons why Pohoda love THOM YORKE in all of his metamorphoses apply equally to Radiohead as well as to his other projects. While most of the British guitar legends of the 1990s remained true to britpop, Thom went far beyond genres both with the band and with his solo music, and remained true only to the indisputable quality and diversity of his work. Due to his broad genre coverage, he is often cited as a source of inspiration by guitar-based musicians as well as by electronic producers. He’s worked with artists such as PJ Harvey, Björk, Flying Lotus and Modeselektor. Yorke is also a theatre and film music composer, a role that was wonderfully demonstrated by his last year’s album Suspirium for the horror movie Suspiria. The extraordinarily prolific cult musician followed it up in less than ten months with an even more elaborate album – the already mentioned Anima. We are therefore very pleased that “his most ambitious and assured album”, according to Pitchfork, will be performed by Thom Yorke Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes also at Pohoda 2020.
