Petit Biscuit just made a splash with a brand new single from his forthcoming EP called “Drivin Thru the Night“. Self-released through his self-run, wholly independent label Écurie, “Drivin Thru the Night” showcases the French producer and singer-songwriter’s renewed and matured vision for his instantly memorable bright indie-electronic sound.
Following the lead of his 2020 summer smash “Leave Again” with Shallou, Petit Biscuit again delivers gentle vocals on the track. The track’s spacious chord pads and crisp percussion underpin the artist’s nighttime journey, as he explains:
“[The track] is first about freedom. A lonely man is wandering through the streets, living how he wants and going where he wants until he finds his lonely alter-ego. They are sharing what most people would call the beginning of a love story…I would simply call it complicity. Most people would also think they need love to exist but it’s wrong. You can live and exist by yourself. You don’t need anyone else. I’ve been writing all the lyrics in Iceland, where I was isolated for months. I was missing my loved ones but at the same time, I didn’t feel any pressure from anyone, so I had this idea of this lonely man, who’s obviously me, and all that story around.”– Petit Biscuit
Along with the track, Petit Biscuit delivers a music video to breathe life into the concept through a cinematic urban adventure under hazy neon lights. Produced by Incendie and directed by Jean-Charles Charavin, the music video ends with the two characters escaping to a grandiose skyline view, as the female alter-ego exclaims, “freedom has no price; freedom makes life worth living.”
The new single marks the first from his forthcoming LP – the first long-form release since Petit Biscuit’s 2017 debut album Presence. With two stunning singles out the door in 2020, we’re pumped to see what the next era of Petit Biscuit holds.
