Massive Attack – Come Near Me | Music Video

Massive Attack 30.07.2016ANDREW


Massive Attack are a British trip-hop group founded in Bristol in 1988. They rose to prominence in the 1990s with their 1991 debut album, Blue Lines, and have won many coveted awards, including the Brit Award for Best British Dance Act. The band have released music steadily over the years, including a track earlier this year with long-time collaborator Tricky, entitled “Take It There”.


Earlier this week, Massive Attack released three new songs on their Fantom app. Now, they have shared the accompanying visual for “Come Near Me”, directed by Ed Morris. The video stars Kosovan actor, Arta Dobroshi, moving backwards from an unknown male figure and is as bleak and sparse as the track, which features British artist, Ghostpoet, on vocals.


The video also harkens back to Massive Attack’s beginnings with a snippet of one of the band’s best-known tracks and what arguably catapulted them on to the British music scene, “Unfinished Sympathy” (at around 3:04).



The band have released the full EP from which “Come Near Me” is derived from, titled The Spoils. It features two other tracks: the eponymous single, “The Spoils”, featuring Mazzy Star vocalist, Hope Sandoval, and “Dear Friend”.
