Video: Ingenue- Atoms For Peace - "Playful and tender"














The video for Ingenue, the 3rd track on the Atoms For Peace Amok album shows Thom Yorke and Fukiko Takase as twins dressed like proper English gentlemen. The light brown tightly cut suits makes you think of the late 19th century and for whatever reason suits Thom more than skinny jeans. Maybe it is a look he should adopt more often. The choreography by Wayne McGregor (the man responsibly for Thom's dance moves in the Lotus Flower video) while playful and abstract also evokes tender emotions. While a lot of music blogs have been downplaying the impact of the Amok album, I can tell you that Ingenue and other tracks seep into your psyche over time and besides, Atoms For Peace is creating art that pleases themselves like all true artists should.

Ingenue:

You know like the back of your hand
Who let em in
You got me into this mess so
You get me out.

You know like the back of your hand
Your bell jar.
Your collection.
Ingenue.

You get me into this mess.
Fools rushing in, yeah,
And they know it.

The seeds of the dandelion you know blow away.
In good time, I hope, I pray.
If I'm not there now physically,
I'm always before you
Come what may.

And you know it.
Fools rushing in
Yeah
Well you know it.
Who let them in?
Yeah

Well you know it
Gone with a touch of your hand
Gone with a touch of your hand
Move through the moment
Though it betrays
Transformations
Jackals and flames
If I knew now
What I knew then
Just give me more time
I hope and pray
I mistake all you say
The seeds of the dandelion you blow away
