Nina Kinert Finds Haven In Nature In “Chapped Lips” Ft. Samuel T. Herring

Sublime pop

Swedish artist Nina Kinert channels her inner Hester Prynne (from The Scarlett Letter) in her new video “Chapped Lips” featuring Future Islands’ singer Sam T. Herring. Playing with the metaphorical notion of nature as being a sanctuary for the marginalized, “Chapped Lips” shows both Nina and Samuel finding the comfort of each other in the safety of the woods. Built on a delicate arrangement of shimmering chords and sublime vocals of Nina, the track itself feels like a trip to the other side than the woods:

“Chapped Lips” is from Nina’s upcoming record Romantic, which will be out on May 11 via V2 Records.
