Since the music of German artist Nica L’Hiver is tenderly walking on a tightrope between joy and desperation, it makes sense that her latest music video focusses on that fragile dance between the emotions. Teardrops sees the crafted singer dancing between the extremes. On one side she’s peforming a captivating choreography that comes with a certain relieving character while the other side of the clip sees her sinking deeper and deeper into an anonymous sea. Well, as we all know crying can also have a liberating effect on you, right?

Teardrops follows the patterns of Portishead and Massive Attack, combining atmospheric melancholia with a delicate groove and the track is taken from her most recent self-titled EP that was released one year ago. We surely hope there’s more on the horizon by Nica L’Hiver in the future. For now, please enjoy the wintry warmth and nocturnal brightness of this must-watch music video we’re premiering right now.
