Haiku Salut recently released a virtual reality video for their single ‘Occupy’. What’s that though, you don’t have a VR set up in your house on which to watch said video? Don’t worry, the band are playing a show next week where they’ll have all the equipment on hand for you to borrow.

The performance will take place at an undisclosed London location on 2 Nov, before which attendees will be given the opportunity to step inside the video via a VR headset.

“The feeling of ‘Occupy’ is about space and ownership and empowerment, so the memories that appear in the video are ones of joy and union”, says Haiku Salut’s Sophie Barkerwood. “Having a video in virtual reality feels otherworldly, to experience it feels like you’re stepping into a portal to another plane, elsewhere. With the track ultimately exploring ideas of pride and occupation of space, ‘Occupy’ and VR was the perfect marriage”.

Tickets for the show are free, but you’ll need to register here. Or you can stay in the boring old real world and watch the 2D version of the video from the comfort of your own home here:
