Riff: Atoms for Peace – “Ingenue”

Feb 25, 2013

Just give me more time I hope and pray/I mistake all you say/The seeds of the dandelion you blow away

from Ingenue lyrics by Atoms for Peace

Over a glitchy layering of beats and dripping melodies, Yorke’s falsetto glides in serpentine fashion. His diatribe on a naive lover is delivered with a delicate whisper, but by end he turns the tables and begins to question his own role in the failed relationship; [LISTEN].
