Massive Attack: Eutopia

185

Quattro anni dopo l’EP ‘Ritual Spirit’ (escludendo il seguente 7″ ‘Spoils Come Near Me’) i Massive Attack presentano un nuovo mini lavoro audiovisivo, al quale hanno collaborato anche Algiers, Saul Williams e Young Fathers. Le voci narranti sono di Christiana Figueres (“Un Paris Climate Agreement”), Guy Standing (SOAS University of London) e Gabriel Zucman (UC Berkeley).

“Lockdown exposed the best aspects and worst flaws of humanity. That period of uncertainty and anxiety forced us to meditate on the obvious need to change the damaging systems we live by. By working with three experts, we’ve created a sonic and visual dialogue around these global, structural issues; taking the form of climate emergency, tax haven extraction and Universal Basic Income. The spirit of this EP, its elements and ideas have nothing to do with naïve notions of an ideal, perfect world, and everything to do with the urgent & practical need to build something better. In this sense, Eutopia is the opposite of spelling mistake.”
