Video: Nicolas Michaux “Harvesters”

Belgian singer-songwriter Nicolas Michaux will release his second album, ‘Amour Colere’, in September.  This single gives a taste of what to expect.  There is a relaxed, summery vibe and the song is complemented well by video footage shot on the lovely Danish island of Samsø.  Michaux divides his time between the Capitane Records music collective in Brussels and life on Samsø, where he writes his songs and creates the vivid soundscapes he’s known for.

Michaux says of the song and video: “Harvesters is the first song I wrote after arriving on Samsø, the island where I reside with my girlfriend and our daughter. It was two years ago, springtime was burgeoning and I could feel a great relief being able to put my suitcases down after a few years of traveling; I was tired but was hoping for recovery and was determined to live a more simple life.”

“The song was a way to express love and gratitude to my family, a way to acknowledge the passing of time as well and to question the fate of a love story that has to go through a new phase. My propitiatory gift.”

“At the time, I was very interested in Ayurveda, the traditional Vedic biology, and its holistic views on life and the idea that we’re all a unique proportion of the same five elements that constitute the whole universe. The correspondence between macrocosm and microcosm must have played a part in the spiritual journey that lead me to write this song.”

Sit back and enjoy.
