Foals, our favorite quintet from Oxford, has put GoPro’s new spherical virtual reality technology to awesome use in their newly-released music video for “Mountain At My Gates”, the second single off their forthcoming album, What Went Down. Esteemed photographer/director Nabil, who has worked with a long list of notable artists that includes Kanye West, Bon Iver, The Black Eyed Peas, Nicki Minaj, and John Legend, directed the video that allows viewers to interact á la Google Maps Street View.
Use your mouse or W/A/S/D keys on the keyboard to look around the mountain-backdropped alley to the sweet sounds of Yannis Philippakis & co.
What Went Down drops August 28 and was produced by James Ford (Florence + The Machine, Arctic Monkeys, Jessie Ware) in Provence, France. It’s available for pre-order now — check out the teaser below:
