Hear Big Search’s Lilting, Lovely ‘Distant Shore’

With both Foreign Born and Big Search, Matt Popieluch has been making languorous folk-pop for the better part of a decade. The latter project is why we’re checking in today, as Big Search will release the “Distant Shore” 7-inch single on February 12 via Lefse. Paired with the glinting “Lost Coming Down” on the B-side, “Distant Shore” features rolls along on silvery acoustic guitar and electric guitar, as Popieluch coos an airy melody, his voice enveloped by hazy effects. It’s a perfect song for watching clouds float by, or whatever else might offer an excuse for a couple minutes of daydreaming.
