After buying and watching the Massive Attack Eleven Promos DVD, I went looking for some other music videos to pass the time and came across Wild Light – Video works by Tobias Knipf. His two videos for Mount Sims (never heard of them until today) are great.
One of them, for “Ashes”, is really nothing more than an interpretive dance sequence and the other, for “Failling Up”, is nothing but rain hitting a puddle for the length of the track. But there’s something about them. The way they accentuate the music and the mood and the way they are shot makes them more than the sum of their parts. They’re fairly minimal, but they work well. I like.
(And Karmacoma is still, after all these years, my favourite Massive Attack video.)
