Currently playing across the U.S., Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes features the trio of Thom, Nigel and Tarik performing songs spanning Thom’s work, including The Eraser, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, Atoms For Peace’s Amok, Suspiria and of course his recently released ANIMA.
ANIMA was released on 27th June, accompanied by a Paul Thomas Anderson-directed “one-reeler,” also titled ANIMA, exclusively viewable on Netflix. Both the album and the short film (set to three of its songs) have received widespread critical acclaim. In their 5-star review of the album, The Telegraph proclaimed it “a bleak dystopian rhapsody you can actually dance to”, Sunday Times Culture declared it “gorgeous” in their cover feature interview with Thom, and NME lauded the record “an artfully produced fever dream of an album”.
Featuring several songs debuted live over the course of previous Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes performances, ANIMA was written by Yorke, produced by Godrich and features the London Contemporary Orchestra on all nine tracks.
