YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: “Kites” by Geographer
Despite being written out of the Harry Potter movies before book five was even published, ghosts remain endearing curiosities. Instead of stalking Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg, the spectral forms better known as Geographer spend the duration of “Kites” interacting with their own kind, as well as entertaining us with their creative “synth pop… now with cello!” sound. In the context of the video, Mike Deni’s haunting croon feels like a direct response to a torturously paced afterlife constantly mocked by mortals whizzing past. This is an unassuming yet fully realized concept, with an unexpected coda.
