Massive Attack have shared two new songs on their app Fantom. Snippets of ‘Come Near Me’ and ‘The Spoils’ are available to listen to on their app which was part developed by the band’s Robert del Naja. The app also launched their EP Ritual Spirit earlier this year.
The app has been described as a “sensory music player” as it adapts to the users environment. It adapts to variables such as time of day, location and heart beat to blend and match a songs pace with the user. The user can also make their own unique video and audio clips using the app. The band also used the app to release a series of collaborations with artists such as Roots Manuva, Young Fathers, and Tricky.
You can download the app for free here.
