Massive Attack music videos never fail me – always emotive, always provoking, always a little bit of violence, and always expressing the music in fascinating ways. This offering from Edouard Salier is no exception. Through the frozen midst of a godzilla-esque attack on a metropolitan area, every surface, every person, vehicle and building is fractured mirrored glass, the only natural or organic surface appearing to be the form of the giant attacking bunny – an image less comical than it is reminiscent somehow of the bloody starkness seen in the animated rendition of ‘Watership Down‘. Five views in, I’m no closer to full understanding the visuals, but it is mesmerizing in its terrible beauty. Thoughts?
