Single Review – Muse – Dig Down

Muse unveil new single ‘Dig Down’ along with one bad-ass accompanying video. After teasing fans with 30 seconds snippets of raw material and informing the world they were busy working on three new songs, at Air Studios London; one heavy and two not so heavy, one-off single ‘Dig Down’ emerged. Everything you would expect from Muse, ‘Dig Down’ is an electro-fuelled rock anthem of dystopian proportions. Directed by Lance Drake the video sees model, activist and amputee Lauren Wasser charging through a chain of dramatic scenes Rick Deckard, or perhaps more fittingly Resident Evil’s Alice, style. As always, with Muse, the track is an example of the impact of political unrest on the world around us, and a definite call to arms – all be it a peaceful and hopeful battle invite, as Matt Bellamy states: ‘I was looking to counteract the current negativity in the world – that as individuals we can choose to change the world if we want to.’
