The video is for track Ritual Spirit, from Massive Attack’s EP of the same name. Its premise is simple – Moss simply dances enigmatically with a lightbulb in the dark – but has resulted in a beautiful piece of film.
“Me and Kate have been friends for years, but never collaborated, so last year we booked a studio with Medium and set up a shoot,” says Massive Attack’s 3D. “During the session Kate was dancing in the dark, lighting herself with a naked bulb. She perfectly captured the essence of this track … intimate and ritualistic. We edited it back in Bristol to keep it raw with no retouching, I didn’t want to lose the spirit of that moment.”
