VR music videos aren’t anything new, but when an artist known for prolific, stylish animated clips like Gorillaz releases one, we pay attention.
Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s experimental band of strangers is finally back after a long hiatus, and it’s got a new album coming out on April 28th. One of the first tracks off of the new record, Saturnz Barz (Spirit House), has been released with a 360 degree video on YouTube, which you can see below.
It’s the very definition of trippy; the gang enters a haunted house of sorts and each of them is subjected to some harrowing sights. Honestly it’s one of the best and coolest uses of 360 video we’ve seen in a while, but then again we’d expect nothing less from these guys. It also has talking pizza which, y’know, is exactly what we want.
As always, you can watch the video with Google Cardboard and Daydream headsets via the Android and iOS apps.
