Radiohead Shares Bizarre Teaser From Oscar Hudson-Helmed ‘The Numbers’ Music Video

Radiohead Shares Bizarre Teaser From Oscar Hudson-Helmed 'The Numbers' Music Video

Radiohead released a short teaser of their upcoming music video for their single “The Numbers.” Directed by Oscar Hudson, who primarily works on videos with indie bands, the ominous video shows a man dressed in gray trousers and a tank top who is seen sweeping up garbage into a dustpan and dumping it into a bucket. He is all alone in a square room, which seems to be slowly getting filled with sand. 

The director shouted out the band’s clip on his own website saying, “I was asked to interpret a 30-second clip of music from Radiohead’s new album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool.’ I was obviously delighted to do so.” A week ago, the band announced that they had looked for directors and artists to create “short vignettes” to interpret their songs off their latest album. So far the results have been visually stunning.
