Singer-songwriter Michael Dunstan is back with his latest single, The Wind Blows.
Bringing his signature brand of vivid lyricism and laid back vocals to the track, The Wind Blows is an ode to appreciating the smaller things in life. The reflective and peaceful song acknowledges the hidden beauties of life, creating a moment of contemplation and gratitude.
“The Wind Blows is a song for closed eyes.” Dunstan says of the release. “A song to unwind, reflect and relax to. The track is a peaceful journey about acknowledging all the beauty that is held in the unpredictable nature of life, and the unexplained. My front porch in Stirling faces toward our street, which happens to channel the stronger southerly winds we experience when they blow. Where our house is situated however, is relatively protected in comparison to the other side of the street. It's the treasured place that I started exploring and practicing mindfulness in the mornings (simply put, is the art of sitting in silence with eyes closed for periods of time to progress towards being more present, more often).
The Western Australian folk musician had three EP’s under his belt before dropping his debut album, In The Grand Scheme, earlier this year. With over 5 million streams on Spotify alone, Dunstan has extensively toured throughout Australia and New Zealand over the past two years, receiving a warm reception nationwide with admiration for his intricate craft. Earlier this year, Dunstan shared an acoustic re-imagined version of his track, Lay In The Sun.
Having spent eighteen months extensively touring Australia and New Zealand prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dunstan will return to the stage next month for a handful of shows across Perth. Information on these performances can be found here.
