Melbourne creative Alexander Biggs is an artist with a 20/20 creative vision for his music. As a songwriter he expertly creates emotionally charged, captivating and philosophical releases with a grounded lyrical content.
It was only after dealing with a rough breakup, that Alexander began writing in his introspective, acoustic style. Like many songwriters, taking the leap to showcase his music publicly was a slow process. After discovering the likes of early Bright Eyes & Bon Iver his vision of painting a musical picture became clear.
Lately, his efforts have been fruitful, with previous singles ‘Out In The Dark’ & ‘Tidal Wave’ receiving global support on BBC Radio 1 as well as premiere stations Triple J (AUS) and KCRW (US). Collectively, the aforementioned tracks have racked up over 2 million streams on Spotify, as well as entering the viral charts in Australia, The U.S, U.K & Poland.
His live game has now taken Alexander across the globe with an unmissable showcase at The Great Escape. Back home Alexander has supported Frightened Rabbit (UK), Evan Dando (US) & Julien Baker (US).
The new single ‘Car Ride’ is the latest offering from the young artist, a statement of intent and a perfect showcase of his emotive & captivating sound. A stunning chord progression delivered with a juxtaposition of ethereal synths and acoustic guitar layers, shows a songwriting maturity beyond his years.
“This song is about connection in the chaos and clutter of life, the loss of a loved one, the impermanence of our bodies.” describes Alexander. “And how, when the things we love are crumbling away beneath our feet, when the faces we’ve known and loved and kissed cease to ever be the same again, the memories and the love and the tears and the struggles mean only as much as we’re willing to allow them to burn inside us. It’s about carrying them with us. It’s about how tiny you can feel, how every loss is felt. And it’s about how lonely it is in their absence.”
