The Brvtalist is pleased to present the music video premiere of "False Awakenings" by Portland-based artist Ian Hicks. Many know Hicks from his exceptional work with synth-wave/pop project Soft Metals. He now returns to solo work and his latest release, VIY, is available on Glasgow's Clan Destine Records. This new work represents a nice assortment of equipment, moods and textures to create something that is both pure and ice cold, reminding us of the Cascadian winters of the artist's home base. "False Awakenings" delves into the shadows with surgical precision as Hicks finds heart thumping rhythms that quickly infect the the body's nerves.. The video's retro footage and science-fiction themes hypnotize for all eight minutes.
