So chuffed to announce our Burning Shapes ‘Bad Karma’ film has just won Best Music Video at the 2018 New Media Film Festival in L.A. where it also received a red carpet premiere screening.
Thin Air is an intimate glimpse into a couple's relationship at a crucial turning point. Created as a collaborative multi-discipline experiment, the intention was to utilize the immersive nature of 360 in order to experience storytelling through music and movement in a contemporary way.

360° videos are best viewed using a good VR headset to get the full immersive experience. If you own one, odds are you’ve done this before and know what you’re doing. Go grab that headset and your headphones then click here.
For those that don’t have a headset the next best experience is to use a smartphone or tablet. This places you in the centre of the scene and allows you to hold your device up to the action, like a “magic window”. Wherever you move your device (left, right, up, down) is where you’ll be looking. You will need to make sure you have the here.downloaded onto your device from the Apple or Google Play Store before you will be able to view the video this way. When you’re set make sure you've got your headphones plugged in (this is a music video after all), then click
If you are viewing the video on a laptop or desktop computer make sure your browser supports 360° video (Safari for example will not support 360 video so try an alternative browser).

To begin watching simply click play on the video above and then select the fullscreen icon to watch it nice and big, but do consider coming back with a headset or mobile device to watch again. 360° video is made for multiple viewings.
Note: If the video footage appears warped and is not responding to your mouse drags then chances are your desktop browser does not support 360° video. Visit this page in another browser such as Chrome or choose one of the other methods to view the video.
Simply beautiful! I like the vibe, as it reminds me of songs from artists I admire (Jose Gonzales and John Martyn)Ola Szmidt Fresh on the Net
Imagine Brian Eno producing The Everly Brothers in an overgrown suburban greenhouse. There is a sly imagination at work here and a gift for melody.Tony Heywood Music OMH
There is always that moment when I feel inclined to reach for an album by Nick Drake, Low, Neil Young or the Kings of Convenience; when nothing else will suffice, but a hit of introspective acoustic style songs. Sound Sanctuary have found their way into that special place inside my record collection.Andrew Smith Big Chill
Sound Sanctuary are in a part of the music world that they have created themselves avoiding the clichés most other acts pile on with no shame.Pete Sargeant Fair Hearing
The group have created something quite unexpected that should act as a good starting point for a career that should shine. 9/10Nick James Atomic Duster

Sound Sanctuary have succeeded where so many bands before them have failed - in breaking the mould. If Richard Ashcroft ever had a secret lovechild with Suzanne Vega, I would expect the resulting spawned musical genius to produce something like this.KJS Twisted Outlook
The harmonious flow of the tracks, and the snippets and samples that filter their way into the introductions, brings to mind the Beta Band and their genre-blending. The lyrics have an ethereal feel to them as well, in the space of a few lines managing to debate the existence of God, Love and Rock n Roll.Andrew Reilly Room 13
Flawlessly beautiful outing from this generation's Radiohead. Sound Sanctuary have given us a stunning platter of indie-esque art rock that lays claim to no one genre, instead it adapts every genre from blues to electronica, from soul to rock to create something truly unique.Tom Brumpton New Noise
A burnished cocktail of folk, trip hop, 60s West Coast pop and blissed out art rock... Imagine Simon and Garfunkel gone electronica and you won't be far off.Mike Davies The Beat
