Sigur Ros unveil 360-degree version of 24-hour Route One video
Plus a new iOS app
Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Rós have added a new degree of interest to their 24-hour “slow TV” project Route One, which live-streamed a drive around the Nordic nation last month accompanied by the sounds of their new song “Óveður.”
On Tuesday the band released a 360-degree rendition of the video, which allows viewers to click and drag around to survey the unfolding Icelandic coastline and countryside — in 4K HD, no less. It’s the next best thing to hopping in a van with Jonsi and the gang and hitting the road.
The group has also unveiled a Route One app for iOS that allows users to generate their own continually evolving renditions of “Óveður.”
