The Smile Share Paul Thomas Anderson-Directed ‘Friend Of A Friend’ Video

Radiohead spin-off The Smile recently shared a music video for their new track “Friend of a Friend” from their sophomore album Wall of Eyes.

The Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video, which was shot on 35 mm film, sees Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood and Tom Skinner performing in an auditorium filled with elementary school children, whose responses range from rapt gazes to yawns to general mischief.

Yorke begins the song with a sprightly bass line and some fairly wholesome lyrics: “I can go anywhere that I want / I just gotta turn myself inside out and back to front”.

The music video marks the group’s third collaboration with Anderson, who previously directed the video for Wall of Eyes‘ title track as well as the album’s accompanying cinematic event, “Wall Of Eyes, On Film.”
