Radiohead premieres two new songs in Miami

Posted By on Tue, Feb 28, 2012 at 3:54 PM

Remember when every new Radiohead song was a worldwide media event? Well, it sort of still is. Video has been circulating 'round the 'net all day today of the Oxford lads' show last night in Miami, where the group played not one but TWO new tunes.

Since the vibrant In Rainbows emerged a few years ago, new Radiohead songs have generally fallen into two distinct categories. There are the nervous, skittering dance tracks (think "Lotus Flower" and then there are the droney, druggy slow jams (e.g., "Nude"). Of the two new ones, "Identikit" (video above) seems to be more the former, while "Cut a Hole" (below) is the latter. Both are quite good, though as we've learned before, we'll have to wait for the album to really get a feel for them.

Don't forget: Radiohead swings through Atlanta on Thursday.
