Bickford has spent the past decade slowly refining his own strain of cerebral pop songwriting as “The Strugglers”, releasing his third and fourth albums on the Madrid-based label Acuarela Discos and touring Europe and the States multiple times along the way before deciding to step out from behind his old moniker.
Bickford’s songs straddle the space between literature and music, belonging ultimately to neither world. Almighty tastemaker Pitchfork once praised his writing, observing that his lyrics often “trace a single thought or sketch a single image throughout the winding course of several bars, building suspense and making you wait patiently for the pay-off”.
He lives in Chapel Hill, NC with his wife and two children, and is currently working on the follow-up to last year's Scott Solter-produced eponymous debut.
