The newest Vanilla Ninja music video to the song “Encore” was released already 3 weeks ago. To sum up this extraordinary piece of art’s place in the band’s history, we asked the top visual creators of Estonian young generation and the directors of the video, Eskobros, to tell the story behind their latest work and the cooperation with the legendary Estonian music group. Also, you can see exclusive photos from making of the video here.
“Encore” is without a doubt our most epic video (so far).
I remember one October night Raul rushed into the room extremely excited saying something like: “Romet, you won’t imagine what just landed in our mailbox.” It was an offer from Piret to create a music video for the legendary female band “Vanilla Ninja”. We were sold instantly.
I have to admit, we have never been the biggest listeners, however we have been super fans of the Vanilla Ninja ice cream since childhood. If someone had told us then that one day we would be directing a video for these women, we would never have believed it. This iconic aura guided the whole process and we fully cherished every single moment. It still took a while to realize that we were actually working with such icons.
Vanilla Ninja’s new music video reveals the band’s refreshed lineup
Tonight at 5 p.m., Vanilla Ninja’s music video to the song „Encore” will reach YouTube, revealing the band’s new lineup.
Last week, Vanilla Ninja reported there were important changes happening among their members. Singer and bass player, Triinu Kivilaan, and keyboard player, Katrin Siska, announced their departure. Instead, a recognized Estonian singer will take their place in the band. Her identity will be revealed tonight, at 6 p.m., when the new video premieres on YouTube.
If you cannot wait till the evening, you can already listen to the song on Spotify, for example, and try guessing by the voice who this mysterious new member is. – suggests Piret Järvis-Milder, the band’s vocalist and guitarist.
Vanilla Ninja released a new song, “Incredible”, which is the last single before the premiere of the comeback album “Encore” on October 8th.
“Incredible” is one of the brightest tracks in our repertoire. Just the right song to remember the passing summer and face the autumn with. – said Vanilla Ninja’s main vocalist, Lenna Kuurmaa. The single is one of the shortest Vanilla Ninja songs, lasting a bit over 2,5 minutes. Though sung mostly by Triinu and Lenna, it still gives the fans the long-awaited part performed by Piret. The accompanying music video’s release is planned for tomorrow, 18:00 (GMT+1).
“Incredible” is now available for digital download and streaming. For more information, check https://save-it.cc/brosmusic/incredible.
Vanilla Ninja released the third single this summer, “The Reason Is You” from their upcoming album “Encore”.
We are so pleased that “The Reason Is You” is reaching the listeners today, on Estonia’s Independence Restoration Day, because the video to this song is our first one for the international market that was shot in Estonia. – said the band member, Piret Järvis-Milder.
Throughout our career, we have filmed in Iceland, South Africa, Mallorca and many times in Germany, but not yet in Estonia. So we were really glad to finally create a visual for our music at home, as we had dreamed about it for so long.
The video for “The Reason Is You” was shot in Kultuurikatel’s boiler room and although it was directed by Oliver Sommer from Germany, the film crew consisted mostly of Estonians. The video’s cinematographer was Mart Vares, the styling was taken care of by Karolin Kuusik, make-up was done by Kaia Triisa and Mammu, and you can see Borka behind the drums.
