Today singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and collaborator Ásgeir has shared a brand new video for his lead single “Unbound”.  The video deals with an unknown virtual reality world, where the subjects are able to express their deepest and darkest desires, through a futuristic virtual reality contact lens. The video explores their intertwining virtual lives, the perfect interplay between the lyric (written by Thornsteinn – Ásgeir ‘s brother) “Nothing holds me back now” and a virtual world that is yet to exist.

Director Julien Lassort’s vision was to make something that exemplified the paradoxical idea of a strong bond between strangers – where lives were closely linked but the subjects didn’t know it. The characters are bound together by a mysterious virtual reality game – but their fantasies don’t quite play out how they were supposed to.
