Massive Attack: The Spoils

In Massive Attack’s just-released, John Hillcoat-directed video for “The Spoils,” Australian actor Cate Blanchett’s beautiful face decomposes in front of your eyes—eventually resembling something discovered in an ancient tomb. The slow-moving, haunting video is a perfect match for the song, which features vocals from Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval. Written by Daddy G and Stew Jackson, the track is undeniably Massive Attack—mesmerizing sounds from an outfit that’s been keeping us entranced for decades.
