“As drums lightly pound and Biggs works his guitar like Sufjan Stevens in his quieter moments, the track finds a resting peace in the refrain, ‘Do I make you miserable?’ The topic itself may be sad, but just as with the message tucked within the words, there’s hope laced throughout the music.” – Consequence of Sound
Alexander Biggs makes softly devastating music that hooks ears and breaks hearts. His distinctly gentle vocals, stinging lyricism, melodic ingenuity and evocative acoustic arrangements so effectively encapsulate the ambiguous pain of early adulthood – loneliness, despondence and nostalgia for a more carefree time. Self recorded and produced, ‘Laundromat’, ‘Madeleine’, and ‘Miserable’ are the first offerings of Alexander Biggs’ debut album.
The 26-year-old songwriter has supported top tier talent including Julien Baker, Frightened Rabbit & Evan Dando (The Lemonheads), received tastemaker support from folks at triple j, BBC Radio 1 and KCRW, and amassed over 6 million streams on Spotify. Alexander’s music has resonated with audiences across the world, and seen him perform in the UK, US and South America.
