Premiere: Briskey – 'Nothing to Lose'

Friday, August 16, 2019

We're incredibly excited to today share Briskey's dazzling debut single 'Nothing to Lose'. Briskey is the moniker of Brisbane-based artist, producer and multi-instrumentalist Wil Briskey. Drawing upon pop influences, 'Nothing to Lose' is an impressive start for an artist on the rise. To celebrate the single, Briskey share's the story of the track with us below. 

I wrote ‘Nothing to Lose'… In a warehouse we rented from Sean of Last Dinosaurs with my Producer JP Fung. We went through a couple of rewrites at first and it took a while to get things right but it’s all the better for it.

The story behind ‘Nothing to Lose' is… It’s about my relationship with loneliness. But I also see it as an optimistic look at the future, I’ve got Nothing To Lose.

My favourite lyric is… ‘It’s hazy, the light, it’s burning up my night / Still I feel your sight, suddenly I’m alright’

It was made… At Plutonium Studios with JP Fung and their in-house engineer Aidan Hogg in October last year. Was such a great experience working with those two.

My main inspiration was… The Weeknd's 'I Feel It Coming' and Two Door Cinema Club's song 'Sun'. I loved the slow jam feel of those two songs and wanted to capture that feeling and have my own take on it.

It sounds best to when... In the car for sure. All good songs need to pass the car test.
