Emerging London-based singer & songwriter briskin returns with a massive new single this weekend, called ‘Rhythm’.
Although the track is lyrically inspired by the concept of unrequited love, its uplifting pop production and memorable melody makes this one of the season’s catchiest bops. Elaborating further on the song, briskin says:
“‘Rhythm’ is a song we wrote over zoom about wanting someone who doesn’t give anyone the time of day but in a tongue in cheek/ playful way. I think though this one is about the vibe more than anything, it’s feels more like painting a picture and scene setting than narrative to me. I wanted it to feel like something you might hear on a night out and I tried to put an emphasis on it being immediate and explosive.”
‘Rhythm’ follows on from the artist’s recently released ‘Circus’ EP, which you can listen to here. briskin recently supported Nessa Barrett live, and earlier in the summer also played his first headline show in Dalston.
It’s a big day for London-based singer, songwriter and producer briskin, who has just unveiled a new EP, single and music video.
‘Songs In The Rain’ is taken from the artist’s ‘The Circus’ record (out now), and treats listeners to a thoughtfully written piece of music that is not only impressive in its production, but also very catchy. Elaborating on the track’s inspiration, briskin says:
“It’s a tongue and cheek play on the classic rom-com trope of holding a boombox outside a persons house to try and win them back/ win them over. I thought it would be funny to imagine what it would be like if someone did it in real life and I came to the conclusion that the neighbours wouldn’t like it one bit. But in essence the song is about making a fool of yourself to impress someone.”
So far in his career, briskin has picked up tastemaker praise from the likes of Clash Magazine and The Line of Best Fit, supported Nessa Barrett on select tour dates and amassed more than 300k career streams.
