Brijs has just released his third single, 'Stay Up, Stephanie' from his forthcoming debut album, 'Glitra'.
The three minute long psych-pop track is bursting with youthful energy. Briji’s voice blends effortlessly with the song’s additive guitar riffs, unexpected mandolin chimes, and powerful drum beats. These elements give “Stay Up, Stephanie” an irreplaceable sound that transports listeners back to the 1960’s.
"This song is about that feeling of arriving at your favourite venue, with your favourite people in tow and having everyone invested in the night lasting for as long as possible. No one wants to be the first one to fall.”
Like all of the songs from Brijs’s forthcoming LP, “Stay up, Stephanie '' was inspired by his decision to quit his job in London. Briji became a property guardian in his rural hometown and acquired a new group of friends. Together, they embarked on a journey of self-discovery. The time period, which would become the concept of “Glitera” was characterised as a mood of pursuit.
That’s how I see that period of time… A mismatch gang in a crumbling old vessel, travelling towards our personal unknowns and at the same time, towards each other.”
The album was produced by Rob Brinkmann (Drake, Clean Bandit & Mumford and Sons) and mixed and mastered at Abbey Road by Oli Morgan (Bastille, Princess Nokia). The album also includes two collaborations with songwriter Ed Nash of Bombay Bicycle Club.
