Melbourne creative Alexander Biggs has unveiled his debut album.
Self recorded and produced by Alexander Biggs, Hit or Miss was written and recorded in many places " from blanket fort hideaways in a noisy city to a suburban kitchen; the lively lounge room of friends of friends to a makeshift bedroom on the lounge floor of his mother's house.
Upfront and sincere at times, near-sardonic at others, Hit or Miss engages with themes of loneliness, distance, and macaroni necklaces. At times, the record feels like a diary, or collection of personal essays, but with an aptitude for finding the resonance in the idiosyncratic, Biggs displays a clear offering of hope and understanding.
This record is a map of a relationship on trace paper"ephemeral scrawlings on an eternal park bench. It's a document, a movie and a bible, dotted lines drawing out the ugly and the pretty, misery and joy.
"It's my hope this can serve anyone in their travels, through all their loving and all their hurting. I hope it sees them, like it saw me, through all their hits and all their misses, always swinging" explains Alexander.
"I hope all the idiosyncrasies can be universal. I hope the feelings that made sense to me make sense to you."
Hit or Miss enters the world led by focus track 'All I Know', written in New York with new collaborator Tamsin Wilson, vocalist/guitarist of Wilsen.
