“Atlas Air” (Video)


    The members of Massive Attack are currently on a lengthy North American tour to promote their Helligoland album, and have released this video for “Atlas Air” from the record to help with the promo push. This cut is dominated by the breathy vocals of founding member Robert “3D” Del Naja.


    The subject matter for this animated clip covers the kind of weighty topics the band has become associated with in recent times—planes exploding, bodies flying everywhere, oil fields on fire—and is delivered in ashen black and white hues that are a great match for the somber tone of the track.
