Massive Attack – “Voodoo In My Blood” (Feat. Young Fathers) Video (Feat. Rosamund Pike)

Massive Attack have already gotten one name actor to stagger around an ominously deserted cityscape in the John Hawkes-starring video for their Tricky collab “Take It There,” and now they’ve tapped Rosamund Pike to star in the video for “Voodoo In My Blood,” another track off of last month’s Ritual Spirit EP featuring Scottish rap experimentalists Young Fathers. Pike already demonstrated her incredible knack for bugshit intensity with Gone Girl, and she makes use of that talent again here, wrenching her body around in a violent dance routine as she’s manipulated like a puppet by a floating metal sphere. It’s a very creepy video, and Pike’s performance is made all the more impressive by the fact that the sphere must’ve been CGI’d in later and she’s literally reacting to nothing the whole time. Acting! Ringan Ledwidge directs; watch below.

The Ritual Spirit EP is out now on the group’s own Melankolic label.
