On her latest track "Nasty Human," which is the second single in a string of love letters from her filthy-glamour universe, CELIIN explores the dark side of self-identity. Inspired by a broad range of artists from BANKS to Lana Del Rey to Nothing But Thieves, she combines alternative pop music with melancholic plot-lines.
Here, CELIIN exposes the hidden nastiness inside everyone - the part of ourselves that often, we are afraid to see: the tension; the anxiety. The guilt. Somewhere between romance and depression, where extreme emotions meet, this enigmatic Norwegian artist searches for a balance between beautiful and macabre self-expression. With a series of cut-scenes that oscillate between light and dark color palettes, we experience the stuff of raw passion, against a backdrop of sleepless nights and naked vulnerability. "Nasty Human," the latest from CELIIN, investigates the secrets we never tell, and lays out the primal contradiction of humanity: which is that we are all of us both devil and angel.
