Brim Liski

Denver-based Brim Liski presents their new ‘Duels’ EP after a seven-year hiatus. This four-track offering is being released via Latenight Weeknight Records and The Orchard. They have also unveiled the new video for the title track ‘Duels’. Ahead of that release, they previewed the lead track ‘A Different View’.

It has been seven years since their latest album, their previous one being ‘The Repetitions’ album in 2012. They released their eponymous ‘Brim Liski’ album in 2009.

Formed in 2008, their sound defies the main trends of what is happening today, setting their visions on the future. Resembling a band from 2024, their music about as cosmic and dreamy as Saturn’s Hexagon, which also features on the cover art of their new EP.

Today Brim Liski is experimental multi-versed digital artist Cacheflowe (aka Justin Gitlin) and Ryan Policky, who is vocalist and producer for renowned prog-gazers A Shoreline Dream.

Presenting a blend of electro, goth and future pop that is slightly gazey, their music is inspired by epic sounds you might imagine occurring in the cosmos.

This is dark, limitless night music perfect for driving down an endless moon drenched highway. Ultimately, we are hearing a mixture of the diverse sounds both artists bring to the table, setting them apart in a brilliant light.

“Like the EP as a whole, ‘A Different View’, is about the challenge of acceptance to new unexplored territories in our lives. Making big changes. Accepting things aren’t working and to move on. I personally had many issues blocking me from being who I wanted and needed to be,” says Ryan Policky.

“I had been falling victim to acceptance to things I should be pushing away, and once those things were fully pushed out of the picture, things became that much more clearer. Just like the discoveries of new galaxies, formations on other planets, and other unknowns, the focus is becoming more apparent as technology and time moves on.”

With strong initial support from XLR8R and Filter Magazine, it was clear that Brim Liski’s videos feel more like a blurred out dream being torn apart by technology. Their unique and dramatic live shows blend the art of dynamic installations and vivid colors.

“I had been working with Justin at an ad agency – working on games for a bunch of entertainment projects for Sony and the like. I found out his passion for music production and we instantly hit it off. He had been working on material and setting up PR for his project, Cacheflowe, and I was working super hard on getting A Shoreline Dream up and going,” says Policky.

“We exchanged ideas and eventually started working on remixes, eventually leading to Brim Liski, which was a side project for both of us, but an important one. One of my dearest girlfriends Michelle Brim had just passed away, and I was torn apart. Brim Liski, named in her memory, became that passion project to get those emotions out, and I was lucky enough to have Justin’s talent help bring it to life.”

As of March 22, ‘Duels’ is available via online stores and streaming platforms, including Spotify and iTunes. it can also be obtained via Bandcamp.
