Nina Nesbitt has released her personal and powerful new single, “Dinner Table” along with an accompanying video. Nina’s instantly appealing voice leads a production that’s both sophisticated, understated and growing in splendour as she reflects upon the lives of the women in her family. Watch the video now below.
Comparing her own world to the experiences of her mother and grandmother, Nina notices the big differences (differing languages; adoring Elvis in the ‘50s or Bowie in the ‘80s; a life documented in black-and-white photography). But scratch the surface, and their similarities are far more compelling. As she sings, “Some things have changed but we got the same old heartbreak… I find it funny ‘cause somehow I still relate.” Those experiences that tie a family together through the generations are something that so many people can connect with.
Nina says, “I wrote ‘Dinner Table’ about the three generations of women in my family. It tells the story of the parallels and differences in our lives, growing up in different decades, but the magic of gathering round a table and talking for hours still hasn’t changed.”
The “Dinner Table” video follows Nina as she heads back to Sweden to reconnect with her family’s roots. Her grandmother still lives there in the small town of Märsta, just north of Stockholm. Using intimate, self-filmed footage that was edited by Nina, it sees the three generations enjoying their time together sharing memories. It also shows old family photos, which reveal just how much the other family members looked like Nina in their younger years.
Tomorrow, Nina will kick off a month-long major US tour as guest to James Arthur. All dates can be found HERE.
