Scottish pop songstress Nina Nesbitt has released a beautifully filmed video for her latest single "Colder."
The track itself is a bop. The sun-soaked pop has vague R&B feel to it, the hint of a groove settled in underneath the production. Nesbitt has a beautiful grit to her vocal, which gives something that could easily go the bubblegum route a gravitational edge. Of the track, Nesbitt says: "'Colder' was the last song I wrote for the album. It was written after watching young kids in love and how fearlessly they fall for each other because they’ve most likely not had their heart broken before. It’s a song about the aftermath of that and explaining to someone why you find it hard to open up.”
The stylish video, shot at Bing Crosby's former home, is perhaps ironically largely comprised of virginal imagery. Surrounded by flowers, Nesbitt emerges from a pool of water with a veil on, both baptismal and bridal. Nesbitt seems to embody a kind of contradiction in terms in "Colder;" she's attempting to be born again into a sunnier, newer relationship while hiding hurt.
