The UK's raspy folk jugglers Foals are gearing up to release their forth LP, What Went Down, at the end of August. Today, the band dropped a video for the album single "Mountain at my Gates," which was filmed using GoPro's new spherical camera mount to create a virtual reality experience. The clip was directed by Nabil, who's helmed videos for the likes of Frank Ocean and The Weeknd.
The premise of the video is simple enough: the band plays the song in some kind of mountain valley surrounded by birds. Viewers on Chrome or the YouTube app can use the compass in the upper-lefthand corner or the A / W / S / D keys to shift their perspectives while the band continues to play. It's very similar to Bjork's recent video for "Stonemilker," which used a custom GoPro setup to achieve its effect.
What Went Down is out August 28th.
