This previous February, Radiohead released their first iOS app, a speculative music and art project called PolyFauna. Utilizing music from their King of Limbs tape-recording session as the background for abstract and developing visuals, the app was equal parts musical efficiency and art piece.
Now Radiohead has actually launched an update for Polyfauna, including brand new music and visual landscapes from the band. The app’s “Whats New in Variation 2.0” description simply checks out “Entirely brand-new” and they’re not lying.
Version 2.0 features an entirely new soundtrack by the band, one that will quickly remind long time fans of their ambient-minded cd Kid A. The unusual forests of the initial app have been replaced with progressing areas of celestial spaces, stars, and light.
Gamers– if you can call this app a game– browse the worlds by tilting their iOS device in numerous directions. The title deliberately overlooks any tutorials, so plug in your headphones for perfect sound quality and get prepared to check out. You can pay attention to four previews of the new Radiohead music found within the app below, then head over to iTunes to download it for free.
