Riff: Atoms for Peace -”Stuck Together Pieces”

Feb 25, 2013

You can have anything that you want/Except the thing you really want/Go back to where you came from/Go back to what you know

from Stuck Together Pieces lyrics by Atoms for Peace

The afrorock influence is evident here, especially in the bassline. It’s a good sound for Yorke who seems comfortable navigating the space between the organic and electronic. Lyrically he takes aim at the fickle bonds that bind society, but by end he relinquishes the message to the rhythm; [LISTEN].
