WATCH: Explosions in the Sky’s Trippy First Video


Austin, TX’s Explosions in the Sky are known for their instrumental post-rock songs, some of which have been featured movies and TV shows like Friday Night Lights and One Tree Hill. But after 12 years and six albums, they’ve never had a music video of their own. Until now.

The band just released a clip for “Last Known Surroundings,” from their latest album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, via Wired magazine’s blog. It’s an eight-minute, computer-generated piece, courtesy of the band’s pals at Austin design studio Ptarmak, that matches the song’s ethereal, walking-on-the-moon vibe with geometric mapping and natural elements – sea creatures, vegetation, rivers — flourishing in some deep-space world. Trip out!

“It took them months and months of solid work,” the band explains. “And we couldn’t be more pleased with their finished product.”
