Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien has released a video for his new nine-minute track “Brasil” as EOB.
While gearing up for the release of his debut album, he released a short film for the track, which features Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood.
“‘Brasil’ is a state of mind, not a place or time,” O’Brien explains. “H.P. Lovecraft, Kubrick, and Junji Ito have created some of my favorite sci-fi narratives. But I’ve always wanted to reinterpret their horrific premises into a more poetic and optimistic notion. What if an alien or higher being were to come to earth to help us achieve a greater existence, and not to destroy us? The theory that humans, as a species, actually represent one large, singular organism has always fascinated me.”
