It’s been a couple months since Alexander Biggs first stole our hearts with his bedroom recorded, mixed, and mastered second single, Out In The Dark, but there’s no forgetting the beauty of that tender pastoral gem. The Melbourne based singer songwriter comes through with a new pastoral ballad named Tidal Wave, only to take my breath away all over again. The song is about “the influence someone can have in the distance they create, or more so in the distance that already exists.” Though Tidal Wave has a more immediate and resolute presence, it’s still a wistful bloom of heartfelt earnestness. Its poetic lyrics and verdant acoustics are evocative of Blind Pilot with some Joseph Arthur (in particular my favorite sweetly sorrowful Arthur song, Honey And The Moon). Tidal Wave will be on Alexander Biggs’ debut EP, Until I Go To Hell, set for release this November.

Out In The Dark moves with stark honesty, an earthy beauty from Melbourne’s Alexander Biggs. Its lo-fi dream folk ambiance and pastoral earnestness seem to combine Blind Pilot, stripped down Death Cab With Cutie, and early Youth Lagoon (the Trevor Powers of first album The Year Of Hibernation, to be exact). The heart rending song was recorded, mixed, and mastered in Alexander Biggs’ bedroom, and it’s the second single from his debut EP, due for release later this year. Watch the video for tender Out In The Dark below. Its glowing lantern is a fine representation of the song, whose soft glow is a beacon of light, or a shooting star, in the darkness of this muddled world.
