NINA K has announced details of a new single, ‘Impossible’, which will be released by NINA K’s own label, Ninkina Recordings, on May 8th, 2015. The track is taken from her forthcoming album due for release in the fall 2015.
Big voices and powerful personas has always been important. A musical home. But Nina has never been interested in being just a voice. She is a true craftswoman at heart, handling every little detail and decision in the process on her own. A 2015 version of the “DIVA” and a female music auteur, handpicking only the most suitable collaborators. This time Alex ”Lexxx” Dromgoole (Björk, Jessie Ware, Angel Haze, Madonna) as mixer, and spaced-out experimental musician and synth wizard Daniel Fagge Fagerstrom (Optic Nest, The Skull Defects) as co-producer. The result is a dreamy and experimental pop recording of flutes, harps, 90’s tambourine beats, floaty synthesizers.
In 2010, after her science fiction inspired album, “Red Leader Dream”, Nina Kinert put her artist career on ice – indefinitely. She started lending out her writing skills and vocals to others exploring the worlds of modern disco and dance pop with acts Tomas Barfod, WhoMadeWho, Nadastrom and CMG to name a few. And in between studio sessions she took a bachelor degree in film studies. Being “on ice” turned out to be a process in itself.
Inspired by divas from her eighties/nineties childhood – Mariah Carey, Sade, Sinead O’Connor and Enya – NINA K releases the song IMPOSSIBLE. The song is about the difficulty of growing up without letting go of the diva-dream..
The video, made by documentary director Jacob Frössén, is inspired by the classic video for O’Connors ‘Nothing compares to you’ and video for This Mortal Coils ’Song to the Siren’. It contains clips from lonely work day plane rides and a honey moon under a Caribbean sun.
Further details of Nina K’s new album will be released soon.
