Ep. 2: Brasko, Glam-pop and Masculinity

By Nate Eckman

Brasko is a glam-pop artist from Nashville, Tennessee. His music and aesthetics muddle the lines of gendered norms and challenge notions of masculinity. Despite his often shocking lyrics or looks, in this episode Brasko reveals these absurdities are just a reflection of the norms that already exist. We discuss a myriad of topics in this episode: how he found his voice as Brasko after a lifetime of playing music, how uncomfortable he was when he first started embodying this character, and what “making it” means to him now that he’s making and playing music he’s always wanted to hear. His most recent single, lipstick stains, is available everywhere music is heard. Some links to topics and ideas discussed in this show: That word I forgot. . . sapiosexual: finding intelligence sexually attractive or arousing Kurt Vonnegut Prince David Bowie Glam-pop Brasko: An Artist You Should Get to Know
