Anathema are one of the most inventive heavy bands out there. If you have doubts, spend five minutes watching their new video for “Springfield” from their forthcoming album, The Optimist, which will be released June 9 on Kscope.
Anathema perform the track seated, their silhouettes captured in reverse negative. Despite the low-key approach, the energy is palpable, particularly through the massive crescendo that they execute flawlessly. It is an immersive audio visual experience that few bands can accomplish. Anathema pull it off with ease.
