It seems a little counterintuitive to get esteemed music video director Nabil to shoot one entirely on a crappy little GoPro camera, but that’s what the video for Foals’ “Mountain At My Gates” asks of him. Nabil and the band have collaborated before on videos for “Bad Habit” and “Late Night,” so it makes sense that he’d say yes. The gimmick here is that it was all shot on one of GoPro’s “spherical” cameras, which allow for an interactive video where you can scroll around 360-degrees Google Maps-style and see Yannis Philippakis and company playing in an alleyway with some mountains as their backdrop. To view the interactive video, you’ll have to be using Google Chrome or the Youtube app on mobile. Watch below.
