This astonishing, brutal video for Ashnikko marks the return to music videos by Mike Anderson, perhaps best known for his videos for Yeasayer as member of New Media Limited.

The breathless narrative for Cry starts with a gory climax, flashes back to an origin story that provides the explanation of Ashnikko's transformation from happy-go-lucky space robot operator to embittered human mutation and remorseless killing machine. And it's all Grimes's fault. She's an extremely saidistic all-powerful fairy.

Anderson's extraordinarily imaginative use of 3D animation provides the accompaniment to an expletive-drenched track that radiates off the scale levels of aggression. It's the stuff of beautiful nightmares.
