Massive Attack Debut Ominous Video for ‘Voodoo in My Blood’ Starring Rosamund Pike
In terms of sheer sinister quality, Massive Attack’s new video for “Voodoo in My Blood” appears to pick up where their “Take It There” clip left off.
The Young Fathers-featured “Voodoo in My Blood” is the latest single from the English outfit’s Ritual Spirit EP, which landed last month. Whereas the “Take It There” video starred John Hawkes possessed, stalking across the city at night, the Ringan Ledwidge-directed clip captures Gone Girl actress Rosamund Pike mesmerized by an orb, which eventually leads to a manic dance in a subway station. Check it out above.
“Am I involved?... Someone said the girl in the video looks like me,” Pike said of the video in a press release. “I have been to the Joe Strummer subway. I did have a strange encounter there once.”
Ritual Spirit also features collaborations with Tricky, Roots Manuva and Azekel. It was produced by Massive Attack’s own Robert “3D” Del Naja. They intend to release another EP this spring followed by their first full-length since 2010’s Heligoland later this year.
