Australian Alexander Biggs sings of a painful break-up on today’s song ‘Laundromat‘. His is the ultra lo-fi pioneered by the likes of Bright Eyes, scratchy guitar and an unaffected vocal with a few additional sounds added in a bedroom studio.
The twenty-six year old captures the hurt of a bruised romance – early on it sounds as if he initiated it all “Wednesday night you took me to a magic show / The same night I said I was gonna leave / Secretly I hoped that there was something up your sleeve / But I don’t think I believed it.” By the end of the song though you have to wonder where the truth lies “But I hope that you’re okay / Oh I hope that you’re okay / Dancing on my grave.”
