Markus Nikolaus – Bicycle Day

Egal was Markus Nikolaus anpackt, scheint einfach zu funktionieren. Die eine Hälfte von Lea Porcelain überzeugt natürlich auch Solo und das ist beneidens- und bemerkenswert. Die neuen Songs für das kommende Soloalbum hat Markus im Lockdown geschrieben, ursprünglich als Lea Porcelain Songs gedacht. Aber die Songs hatten eine ganz andere Identität, sie waren fröhlicher und nicht so melancholisch.

Markus beschreibt den neuen Song und den Sound so: „Bicycle Day is a playful and psychedelic song that was originally written during the 1st Berlin lockdown after a very long bike ride and under the influence of mind altering substances, together with my girlfriend Sara. As the inventor of LSD was riding his bicycle while experiencing the effect for the first time, which is historically and commonly known as „the bicycle day”, I thought it would be the most appropriate way to describe song and express the freedom of limbo we felt and the fear of future we held. This sudden stop of literally any social life and live music performances and these very vage future promises, gave us this inexplicable drive to create music like we don’t care about anything but the purest outcome of it and take that beauty of doing nothing as an inspiration to create something amazing and accept along the way that sometimes in life – you cannot change anything about the situation you are in. And that it is ok to live with it in harmony instead of fighting it. Because only then, harmony will be given to you in return.“
