Atoms for Peace Open Doors to Club Amok With ‘Default’ and ‘Dropped’ Videos

Atoms for Peace Club Amok Dropped Default Video Live

Last month Atoms for Peace blessed Los Angeles with a secret-ish show at Club Amok — the temporary name they’d given the intimate Fais Do Do in honor of their debut album Amok. We were able to experience some of that special warm-up gig thanks to fan footage (in which Thom Yorke aligned himself with Mr. T’s stance on jibber-jabber) but now the band have shared their own footage. Above you’ll find “Default” — all crawling bass and tribal grooves helped along by a Yorke ad lib about “a queen in a fucking dream.” And below is “Dropped,” a more hyperactive track featuring lively instrumentation and, from 3:34 on, some of the greatest spazz-dancing this man has ever committed to camera. Flea, for his part, does that thing where he makes his head move like a bouncy ball across the screen of a karaoke program. Atoms have added Nashville a date to their busy touring schedule. See below.
