Luke Bather - 9th Aug 2016

Tobias Pichler tells the story of a day in the life of a group of European Club Kids in this video for Ghosts.

It's an intimate portrait of kids too young to really recall the 90s embracing some of its more colourful cultural moments without the grace of context. What Tobias gives us here is an almost Harmony Korine-esque look at youth in Europe (more on the Spring Breakers bubblegum end of the spectrum than the Gummo end, admittedly).

It's a weird mix of dizzying colours and candid scenes that provides a story that's neither glossy and perfect nor cynical. Plus, it's probably the first (but not the last) time you'll see Snapchat filters used in a music video so casually.
