Taking us on a rollercoaster of emotions with two new singles is multi-hyphenate and creative Daniel Briskin with “Lost” and “Break”. Starting off in a hazy daydream filled with romanticism and love, “Lost” shows us the start of a promising relationship, whereby Briskin guides us through the blossoming of new emotions with an uplifting contemporary pop melody. But as the fantasy gets to its peak, cracks begin to show and the end of the relationship is in sight.
“When I broke up with my girlfriend, I just remember thinking it was the most heartbreaking thing I’ve been through,” Briskin candidly reveals in the opening for “Break”. “You don’t really know how to feel, and it takes a while to repair.” Led by a melodic piano production, Briskin pours out his heart on the track, as he realises his loss of not only the honeymoon stage but the entire relationship.
Speaking on the track, Briskin explains, “Lost through to Break is the narrative of a relationship from the honeymoon phase all the way to the end. In my personal experience – love is completely intoxicating, but with the highs of infatuation also come the lows.”
Reflecting both sides of the story in two distinctive videos directed by Rebeca Salvadori, Briskin further explains each narrative, deep-diving into the story and capturing the overwhelming feelings showcased in both tunes. Set to be apart of the Briskin’s forthcoming mixtape with Klaxons founder Jamie Reynolds “forever was a feeling”, the body of work will continue to explore a range of teenage emotions through the eyes of a dreamer. Grab the tissues, because we think it’s going to be an emotional one.
