UK folk band, Foals, have dropped a new interactive video for track Mountain at My Gates. Directed by Nabil (who you may remember from his work with Frank Ocean and The Weeknd), the track uses GoPro’s new spherical camera mount to allow viewers to rotate the camera as they watch, using the A/W/S/D keys on their keyboard.
Videos grow more and more creative by the day. From the Jack White to Bjork and everyone in between, now, more than ever, have songs been accompanied by expansive and astounding short films. Virtual reality in this sense is a really interesting, exciting way to bring life to such a great track – one which I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of in the future.
The video shows the band playing while surrounded by a flock of birds, which can be be viewed from any angle at all – you choose your own adventure.
It’s an addictive new approach to music videos, and certainly one that will attract multiple re-watches from viewers.
Foals will be releasing their highly anticipated new album What Went Down on August 28, and they’ll be visiting us for a very special headline performance at Falls Music & Arts Festival over the New Years period.
