Mike Waters Releases Fan Collab Video For 'Feels Like Home'

Ahead of the massive Summer festival season that is approaching and reflecting on a huge year, Mike Water's has released his new video for 'Feels Like Home' which saw him collaborate with fans from all over Australia to create the perfect Summer vibe.

The video, for which Mike worked on with filmmakers Max Rawicz and Jam Nawaz is the perfect accompaniment for a track which was inspired by a trip to Splendour In The Grass. He explains: 

"I wrote Feels Like Home, last year just after a pretty brutal house hunt. I got lucky with the place in the end, it was a nice house with this incredible old school red carpet. At the time I was strugging to write any songs. Everything I wrote I didn't like; there was a lot on my mind at the time. The house that I'd just moved into was the sixth place I'd lived in four years, and I hadn't really felt that sense of 'home' for a really long time. Anyway, I was lucky enough to get away for a weekend to Splendour in the Grass and it was a huge injection of inspiration and motivation. I got lost in the vibe of this huge temporary city that just appeared in the wilderness and I was overcome by this incredible sense of nostalgia that I remember from when I was younger. When I came home I just knew exactly what I wanted to write about - I wrote Feels Like Home about what home means to me, about having this new home, about how feeling music in a crowd is this unique, shared human experience, and about writing music from the heart.

When it came to making this video, I wanted to squeeze all of those elements in. It made sense to me to film the video in my house, and it was in that lounge room that I mixed the final song too. I even tracked the vocals in that room. With all of that in mind I asked everyone on social media to submit their best festival photos and memories to use, because I just wanted everyone to be a part of it."
