Video: Massive Attack – Splitting the Atom


This is the music video of the year so far for me. I love how director Edouard Salier has created his own world of black chrome, bejeweled people, particles and a slow reveal.

The fixed moment of a catastrophe. The instant the atom bursts on the beast, the world freezes into a vitrified chaos. And we go through the slick and glistening disaster of a humanity in distress. Man or beast? The responsibility of this chaos is still to be determined.
