Massive Attack‘s new video for the Damon Albarn collaboration “Saturday Come Slow” takes a couple of minutes to reveal itself, but it turns out to be a short film about the use of loud music as a torture instrument in prisons. The song becomes entirely secondary to the video, which includes both first-person testimony and scientific talk about the implications of this kind of interrogation. Accordingly, we hear the song warped in different directions to demonstrate the effects. It’s a powerful, harrowing way to spend eight minutes.
The video debuted on Feeder on Friday; click over there to watch it.
