The Smile are an English rock band comprising Radiohead members Thom Yorke (vocals, guitar, bass, keys) and Jonny Greenwood (guitar, bass, keys) with Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner. They are produced by Nigel Godrich, Radiohead’s longtime producer. They incorporate elements of post-punk, progressive rock, Afrobeat and electronic music.
The Smile worked during the COVID-19 lockdowns and made their surprise debut in a performance streamed by Glastonbury Festival in May 2021. In early 2022, they released four singles and performed to an audience for the first time at three shows in London in January, which were livestreamed. In June, the Smile are set to release their debut album, A Light for Attracting Attention, and begin a European tour.
