Releases of 360 degree virtual reality (VR) videos are becoming a regular occurrence for promoting products and now the music industry is taking notice of these emerging trends. VRFocus reported on Foals releasing a VR video and now a teaser has been released by Duende, a band that mixes salsa, reggae, hiphop and latin fusion together. The 360 degree video is for upcoming single “Lapiz y Goma”.
The short teaser video shows the band walking between dilapidated buildings to churning, atmospheric background noises while, what look like zombies slowly appear from the adjacent buildings walking towards the camera.
The 360 degree VR video can be viewed via a compatible browser and controlled with a mouse or the WASD keys, it can also be viewed on a smartphone with the YouTube app for the 360 degree experience. If you own a Google Cardboard or similar head-mounted display (HMD) you can view the video through the YouTube app for a more immersive experience.
VRFocus will continue to follow all the latest news on VR from the music industry and report back.
