What is Anima Technologies...?

Thom Yorke seems to be hinting at a new solo project.

A number of posters have appeared around the world, each dubbed with messages from pseudo company Anima Technologies.

The posters have been placed on the London underground, in the streets of Milan, and even the Dallas Observer newspaper in Texas.

The messages contain a phone number - 916-619-6192 in the US or 07588733111 in the UK - which, when dialled, reveals that the company has been shut down.

Seemingly investigating the possibility of a "dream camera" to capture and record our subconscious, it sparked a flurry of speculation online.

After some digging, the truth was uncovered...

So: is this a new Thom Yorke album? The Radiohead frontman scored the Suspiria remake last year, but spoke to Crack in 2019 about his ongoing solo deviations.

He commented: “The dystopian thing is one part of it, yes, but for me, one of the big, prevailing things was a sense of anxiety. If you suffer from anxiety it manifests itself in unpredictable ways, some people have over-emotional reactions. [For] some people the roots of reality can just get pulled out, you don’t know what’s happening. Then eventually reality comes back.”

“For some reason I thought a really good way of expressing anxiety creatively was in a dystopian environment. I had so many visual things going on at this point.”
