Sigur Rós launch 360° video for Route One

Visit the entirety of Iceland’s coastal ring road with a new 24-hour long 4k video

Atmospheric post-rockers Sigur Rós have unveiled their most ambitious video yet – a 360° journey around Iceland’s coastal ring road soundtracked by “a constantly evolving soundtrack based around elements of their latest song Óveður – Route One.

The video was originally created as part of a day-long ‘Slow TV’ event that was streamed throughout Iceland and online. The resultant footage is a gorgeous, widescreen look at some of Iceland’s most beautiful backdrops.

To coincide with the release of the 360° video, an app is also available that uses the music software Bronze to manipulate the song into a new, but still recognisable format that evolves every time it is played. Download it via the website.

Watch the first part of the 360° experience above. If you would prefer not to watch in 360°, check out the 4k video here.
