Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien Releases Solo Album Preview

Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien has revealed Brasil – a solo piece under the name EOB – to accompany a nine-minute short film.

The song has a driving, four-to-the-floor beat and a cacophony of atmospheric soundscapes. The accompanying film is a sci-fi tale of a world under-siege by a mysterious atmospheric event and a Space-Odyssey-like monolith in a lake.

O’Brien’s Radiohead bandmate Colin Greenwood takes care of the bass on the song. Legendary session drummer Omar Hakim (David Bowie, Madonna) looks after the beat while David Okumu (The Invisible) takes care of the guitar. Engineers Adam “Cecil” Bartlett and Richie Kennedy add some programmed atmosphere.

Andrew Donoho (Janelle Monae, Twentyone Pilots, Carly Rae Jepsen) directed the film. “Brasil was one of those tracks just dripping with magic from the very beginning,” he said.

Brasil is the first taste of EOB’s debut album, due for release in early 2020. At the time of publication, the album was yet to be named.
