Song / Video of the Day: Ásgeir – Unbound
“Unbound” by Ásgeir has been doing the rounds at Riot HQ for quite a few weeks now – giving it enough staying power for us to want to share with the rest of the world. A glitchy, mellow and futuristic sounding song with absolutely stunning falsetto vocals that simply melt in your mouth, “Unbound” is the perfect level of eclectic weirdness that we adore.
The beautifully shot and unique video deals in an unknown virtual reality world, where the subjects are able to express their deepest and darkest desires, through a futuristic virtual reality lens. Throughout the film we watch multiple storylines intertwine, hooking us in right from the beginning until the last note rings out.
We’ve been following Ásgeir and his work for many years – it just keeps getting better and better. We advise everyone that loves this go back and check out more of Ásgeir’s work as it is sure to cleanse your musical palette.
