From her upcoming EP due later this year.
Nina Kraviz has shared the official music video to her new single, ‘Skyscrapers’. The track signals the artist’s first major release since 2019 and is taken from her forthcoming EP, with a full-length album to follow in 2022.
The ‘Skyscrapers’ music video follows Nina as she explores Dubai, embracing her different surroundings. Through the juxtaposition of captivating city-life imagery and her melancholic lyrics, Kraviz provides visuals to a love song that incorporates her pop-leaning sound while the artist ventures into new creative territory.
‘When I started writing ‘Skyscrapers’, I was in the middle of a love story that wasn’t going particularly smooth. This song is about love for another person, the kind of love that is strong and painful but also makes you feel alive. One night I packed my bag and went to Dubai. When I arrived and saw all these fantastic skyscrapers I realized that I had to film a music video for my new song here and not in Moscow how I planned it at first – with a proper crew and an actual script. After some phone calls, I managed to find a cameraman. Everything was so last minute and did not have any particular plan. It gave me the right amount of excitement. Instead of writing a script, I would just tell the cameraman where we were going, what we would be doing and he would then follow and film me. It was so spontaneous. It was a very interesting experience. The trip ended being a real adventure full of unexpected turns and provided me with a lot of footage to take home. Eventually, I cut the footage into a little report with a little bit of that ‘lost in translation’ vibe.. so I guess you can call me a director here :)’ says Nina about the process for the video.
