Unexpectedness, time travels back to childhood, deepest forests, beauties and beasts, starry nights, rainfalls and the sense of endless freedom – this is what Possimiste’s colourful world is about.
Possimiste is an artistic character created by a 23-year-old ethereal-voiced Estonian singer-producer and video artist living in Iceland. She is often considered as one of the founders of fantasy-pop music genre. Her poetic and melodical pop is inspired by nature, fairy tales and ritual folk singing. The old tribal tradition of remaining anonymous during rituals is the main reason for Possimiste to appear as a fictional character. She believes that by leaving our physical identity behind the soul becomes more open and connected to the divine immaterial world where music comes from.
The artist was only 15 years old when she gave out her first self-produced single and got discovered by Bad Panda Records. In 2011 the same label released the second official single “Behind The Seas”. With the latter Possimiste won the hearts of many music bloggers, alternative pop (Émilie Simon, Björk,The Divine Comedy) lovers and has until today remained one of the most downloaded Creative Commons artists on the internet. Possimiste is also known for the two collaborations “Sjernen” and “Lumehelves” with the German composer Oskar Schuster.
After giving out the EP “Wanderer”(Field Guide Records) and 6 singles that have scored numerous award-winning films and advertisements including for Vogue, The Wall Street Journal, Design Within Reach, Spell Designs etc. Possimiste has left the Creative Commons world behind and is focusing on finishing her full-length debut album to be released in the end of 2017
