Radiohead ‘Staircase’
Free Music Video Download

Radiohead have been longstanding stalwarts of the alternative rock scene and, following the critically acclaimed album 'In Rainbows', have recently added the album 'King of Limbs' to their discography. The new album contains a number of excellent singles and is definitely an example of Radiohead at their best.

‘Staircase’ was recently unveiled as part of BBC's ‘From The Basement Sessions’, which has featured a number of exciting artists performing live and is available as a free music video download. The video demonstrates Radiohead's flawless live ability as well as the band's seamless synergy when working together.

Opening with scenes of the band setting up in the studio, the video truly reflects a raw and authentic live experience. After moving around some equipment, tuning guitars and limbering up the band quickly find their rhythm with a soft, rattling percussion tapped out by an animated drummer which is then overlade with spacey keys. An interesting aspect of the song which is exposed by the video is the use of two strikingly similar drummers, one playing a traditional drum kit and the other playing an electronic drum kit. The camera begins to move away from a wider shot of the band and focuses on lead singer Thom Yorke as he begins to sing in his distinctively characteristic style. His melancholic vocals float across the track as he loses himself in the music, moving and jittering with the rhythm.

As the track continues the camera gives a glimpse of the dextrous guitar and bass duo who provide the gentle, melodic backbone to the track. Despite the fact that the ethereal keyboard notes and guitar's crunch would normally clash, they perfectly complement each other, especially with the guitars unhinged high pitched feedback style screeching. This musical expertise and resulting tunefulness makes this a track ideal for taking advantage of a free music video download.

Moving towards the middle of the song the rhythm becomes more intensively driving and the camera pans around the studio to reveal musicians truly in their element. The closer the track draws to its conclusion the more it bears a musical resemblance to 'Lotus Flower' as well as some of Thom Yorke's solo collaborations with artists such as Modeselektor. As it comes even closer to the end all the disparate musical elements rise and come together reaching an ambient fever pitch with a brief guitar riff momentarily breaking free. Physically you can see the band begin to reach a satisfied peak which extends to the listener making it the ideal free music video download.
