The wait is over. After weeks of teasing fans with cryptic clues, Radiohead has dropped a video for the new song ‘Burn the Witch.’ It’s a moody, orchestral affair – but the video is the real highlight here. In a wonderful use of contrast, ‘Burn the Witch’ tells a horrific, Wicker Man-type story using childlike, innocent visual style. The video includes beautiful, simple stop-motion animation. I’m a huge fan of stop-motion animation and it’s nice to see the band use it so tastefully.
