Today, Nina Nesbitt reveals the video for her new single ‘The Moments I’m Missing’, which has clocked up near to 1.7 million streams since its July release
Drawing inspiration from the song’s autobiographical lyrics, which paint a deeply personal portrait of Nina’s journey from childhood to music career to her first love, the video for ‘The Moments I’m Missing’ is a subdued, intimate affair. Shot on film to reflect the track’s nostalgia, the video incorporates family footage from Nina’s childhood with present day shots of a pensive Nina contemplating her past.
Speaking about the video, Nina says: “We shot the music video in a studio space with projections of me as a kid all over the walls. It felt like being trapped inside my own childhood, in the best way. I just wanted something that would bring the two worlds together and I’m really happy with the outcome. The whole thing was shot on film and I held the box full of it at the end which was quite terrifying. Luckily it didn’t get broken or lost.”
‘The Moments I’m Missing’ has amassed near to 1.7 million Spotify streams to date, demonstrating the unyielding demand for Nina’s music from her legion of devout fans. Earlier this month, Nina played to a packed Camden Assembly, which sold out in five minutes. Since the release of her debut, Top 15 album ‘Peroxide’ in 2014, Nina has undergone a total artistic evolution, introducing raw, poignant explorations of her own identity, embodying the artist she has always wanted to be.
