Briskey Proves He Is One To Watch With The Release Of His Debut EP, ‘Nothing To Lose’

Australian alt-pop artist Briskey has moved from strength to strength over the past few months. Having released a number of catchy singles leading to his much anticipated debut EP, Nothing To Lose which dropped this week.

Featuring the previously released tunes, Don’t Want To Talk About It, Mesmerising and title track Nothing To Lose the fresh new EP also features one more unreleased tracks, I Will Be Here and Mystery. From start to finish this EP is a pop master piece filled with so much catchiness you’ll have these tracks stuck in your head for weeks and weeks to come!

Throughout the EP Briskey touches on many emotions from loneliness to grinding towards ones ambitions. Produced primarily in his bedroom, this is Briskey’s first attempt at producing music soley by himself before teaming up with renowned engineer, JP Fung.

“The EP was written in partly in my bedroom after attempting to produce music solely for myself, which I had never properly attempted before then. I then took some of the songs to the Producer JP Fung where we took those initial demos and developed them into the songs they are now.

The initial idea was to make music that felt like me, and push the limits of my song-writing capability. It was inspired by pop powerhouses like Calvin Harris with his song Slide, The Weeknd & Daft Punk with their song ‘I Feel It Coming’, while also looking to other amazing artists like Troye Sivan in his album Bloom.

It then took on a life of its own, bringing in more of a dance/pop feel with JP’s influence of amazing pop writing & producing. Thematically the EP explores discussions of my own relationship with loneliness, emotions & ambition.” – Briskey

Overall this is a great debut from Briskey. It’s smooth, jazzy and full of bold pop. Briskey has produced an EP that cements him as one of Australia’s quick rising stars.

Nothing To Lose is available now, everywhere.
