The Coast is a virtual reality music video for the eponymous track by Montreal-based electro-pop band Valaire.
In just under four minutes, The Coast takes viewers through the upbeat landscape of an exotic island rich in colour and lush with life. Set to the rhythm of Valaire’s soundtrack, it offers a novel approach to virtual reality. It was designed to bring smiles to faces and have viewers overcome their inhibitions and dance along, in a short, bite-sized experience that leaves a vibrant, happy memory.
