NICOLAS MICHAUX releases new single ‘PARROT’ from upcoming album
Check the single HERE.
On July 22nd, the Belgian singer-songwriter Nicolas Michaux will release “Parrot”, the third single from his upcoming album Amour Colère. A long-time staple of his live set, “Parrot” shows Michaux at his most groovy, evoking both The Talking Heads and the Congolese rhythms that have long been an influence. The song features Morgan Vigilante’s tight, dry drum sound, a signature of Michaux’s production style, along with Michaux’s slippery and intelligent guitar and bass lines. Arranged by Ted Clark and Clement Nourry, both members of The Soldiers Of Love, Capitane Records’ resident band, Parrot is definitely a funky dance track tailored made for 2020. As Michaux sings “Listen to the words the parrot says and try to repeat” and “Is this a terminal world or just crippling entertainment ?” the song suggests a kind of political and social alienation and the paralyzation one feels in the face of mass media, global politics and the monolith that is online culture. In the words of Michaux, “It’s a frontal attack against the conformist and cowardly part that lies in us all”. Strong words for a strong track.
Michaux released the critically acclaimed debut album “A La Vie A La Mort” in France in 2016. “Amour Colere” will be released in September 2020 worldwide by Capitane Records.
