Watch: Foals – Mountain At My Gates

Watch: Foals – Mountain At My Gates

Foals team up with Go-Pro for a 360 take on their latest single, Mountain At My Gates.

Interactive videos usually suck. There’s no way around it, the whole interaction function is conceptually intriguing but usually glitch-filled and hard to engage with. Foals’s twist on it has been done with GoPro, GoPro's offices consist of 20-somethings who spend their lives on cameras, so the potential for brilliance is high. Furthermore they worked on this clip with NABIL who previously directed their videos for Bad Habit and Late Night. But does this mean the interactivity works? Sort of. The opening shots are intriguing as it brings you into the world of Foals all the while allowing you spin around 360 degrees to examine the place you're in. But you’re forced to follow a set path and you can only explore the place by spinning around on the spot. You’re then dropped into Foals jamming away in a concrete jungle (with security guards on either side?) with a literal mountain behind them. And other than being able to watch multiple Yannis’s jump up and down and spin yourself dizzy the gimmick wears out quickly. But hey interactive video or not Mountain At My Gates is a seriously good single from Foals’s upcoming fourth album What Went Down.
