Crashfaster have an amazing new EP out today called “Superchroma”. To celebrate I created this set of stereoscopic GIFs of the band in action. Most of these shots were taken during the band’s week long stay at Different Fur studios. All photos and glitches by me, Doc Pop, on my tiny little Lumix 3D cam.
