zZounds' Legends of Tone: Radiohead
zZounds' Legends of Tone: Radiohead
Blending a range of influences from post-punk and krautrock to jazz and electronica, Radiohead have built a sound that ebbs and flows naturally with each release, since their first in 1992. At the core of Radiohead's sonic flood is the guitar work of Ed O'Brien and Jonny Greenwood. With rhythms and leads that weave seamlessly around each other, and effect techniques that make Strats and Telecasters sound more like analog synthesizers, Radiohead has honed a sound that's experimental and comfortably familiar at the same time.

Join us for Part 2 of our Legends of Tone: Radiohead series as we take a closer look at recreating the lush soundscapes of Kid A, Amnesiac and Hail to the Thief using gear available at zZounds.
