<Electronica> There’s something of a funereal majesty to looong awaited Heligoland openers Pray for rain and Babel, tasked as they are to blend, rather than seek attention, setting the tone of lazy paranoia that hums of Attack’s catalogue. The latter builds neatly to Splitting the Atom, which plays like an extract direct from Massive Attack’s funkily dark heart – appropriately, vocals are a contrastive duet of the outfit’s vocal heart-chambers Daddy G and Horace Andy. Next is the quietly impressive Girl I love you – a vaguely menacing love song on Andy’s darkly velvet tongue. Massive Attack’s post-Mezzanine years have found projects in soundtracking seeping into the remnant outfit’s aesthetic, snipping at their once magnificent beats and treats – true to said trend, Heligoland is almost all ambience, void of crunch. Stripped, too, is the rich plethora associated with Attack’s production – but this sparsity allows for a quiet confidence – Gone is the ‘!’ factor they used to wield so casually, but then, they no longer need it.
