premiere: watch the video for Nina K’s timeless pop ballad Impossible
We first fell in love with Swedish artist Nina K‘s heartbreaking, completely mesmeric voice a few years back via Tomas Barfod‘s still flawless singles “November Skies” + “Pulsing“. Turns out she’s a pretty great songwriter herself, as evidenced by her first single in five years, “Impossible“, which was mixed by Lexxx (Björk, Jessie Ware, Angel Haze, Fatima Al Qadiri) and inspired by her childhood heroines from the ’80s & ’90s (think Sade, Enya, Whitney, Sinead).
Today, the timeless pop ballad and its soaring, chill-inducing chorus get some beautifully gauzy visuals, shot by documentary director Jacob Frössén, and inspired by two bonafide peak-era MTV classics: Sinead O’Connor‘s “Nothing Compares to You” and This Mortal Coil‘s “Song to the Siren“. Nina K’s “Impossible” single is out now; look for Tomas Barfod to return the favor with a remix of this one due soon.
