It’s been a while since we heard from Finnish artist Ringa Manner aka THE HEARING, following the lovely first impression she gave us back at the 2015 Eurosonic Noorderslag. But now, the talented songwriter returns with an impressive new single Backwards and a really sweet music video we’re officially premiering on NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION today.

The Heta Saukkonen-directed music video sees Mrs. Manner going global as the single shots of the artist and her hand gestures were filmed in all sorts of different locations all over the world. The result is a really sweet and intense little pop moment. If you happen to love the music of early THE KNIFE or ROBYN you might reserve a spot for THE HEARING in your heard. Backwards is taken off her second solo LP which arrives this April. Watch the music video right here.
