Nicklas Sahl Takes Us Into His Songsmithing World In New Video “In The Window Frame”

This is how musicians behave post-breakup

Still from Nicklas Sahl – In The Window Frame (Official Music Video)

Dating a musician can be tricky coz they’ll most likely make a song about you after the breakup. Danish artist Nicklas Sahl documents his own experience channeling heartbreak into the auditory craft in his new video “In The Window Frame.” It’s a sun-kissed track that ruminates on loneliness and longing as Nicklas gradually moves from the past. The video features Nicklas songsmithing in his studio alone between bouts of reflections:

“‘In The Window Frame’ is about the feeling of being stuck in the past,” explained Nicklas. “When the loneliness hits you and you get dragged into the illusion of missing the girl, even though you know deep inside that it’s not rational. The classic situation where you are standing in a bar, sending her a text, knowing that you will regret it at the very next moment. In the song, I walk the line and go out and scream her name towards the window frame and wake up all the neighbours. In real life, I go to the studio and write a song about doing it instead. It is easier to tell the story and yell it out from the speakers than out in the real world.”

The track is from Nicklas’ upcoming album, which will be out at the end of the summer.
