After more than a decade of intricate instrumental rock epics, Explosions in the Sky finally enters the viral visual stream with the video for the band’s new song “Last Known Surroundings,” exclusively premiered above.

The result is more than eight hypnotic minutes of geometric mapping, pulsating landscapes and deep-space sojourns, courtesy of the band’s “close friends” at Austin design studio Ptarmak.
