Ghostpoet 'Freak Show' by Zhang + Knight

Ghostpoet 'Freak Show' by Zhang + Knight

Pleasure becomes an artificial commodity in Zhang + Knight's sprawling, sinister clip for Ghostpoet.

Initially shot overseas before running into some trouble (more on that in a few days time), the video depicts a haunting pre-apocalyptic world in which most of the finer things in life have become synthetic substitutions for the real thing. Pollution seems to be at a lethal high point, morale at a lethal low. A smog covers most of the promo, and slowly creeps through the characters lives - a constant ghostly reminder of a potential near-future.

With moody compositions that feel like something out of a Gregory Crewdson book by way of Black Mirror, Zhang + Knight have crafted a world that's haunting in its nihilistic projections.
