Foals gets interactive.
English alternative rock band Foals has released probably one of the coolest music videos we’ve seen so far this year. Accompanying their new single “Mountain At My Gates” which was released last week, the track has been slowly been climbing up the alternative charts.
Produced by James Ford and directed by Nabil, the video was shot entirely with a GoPro HERO camera. The band and director partnered with GoPro and used their spherical Virtual Reality technology for the interactive video. To derive the best results from the immersive video, it is advised that Google Chrome or the YouTube app is used. When accessed via Google Chrome, viewers can interact with the content by using the mouse or the A/W/S/D keys.
“Mountain At My Gates” makes for the second single for the band’s upcoming album “What Went Down”. Nabil who has directed videos for Frank Ocean and Kanye West, was behind the videos for “Bad Habit” and “Late Night”, two singles from Foals’ previous album “Holy Fire”.
