Nearly three years after releasing their eight album, the members of the almighty English rock band Radiohead have released something new. But those who’ve been anxiously awaiting new music will be disappointment. The five-piece group has launched a new app called PolyFauna, which can be used by iOS and Android users. More details below.
As stated by Rolling Stone, Radiohead have created a window into their virtual world. The PolyFauna app allows users to reveal different views of an angular alternate reality.
The group worked with digital art and design studio Universal Everything on the free app, which frontman Thom Yorke has described on Radiohead’s website as “an experimental collaboration.” The idea for PolyFauna came while working The King of Limbs.
Yorke mentioned that the app also come from “an interest in early computer life-experiments and the imagined creatures of our subconscious.”
“Your screen is the window into an evolving world. Move around to look around. You can follow the red dot. You can wear headphones.”
So, while this app might not be what fans were hoping Radiohead would release, it’s certainly a cool thing to have, you know, while we wait for more music.
What do you think? Have you tested the app?
