Bryson, The Alien is new to Portland. The Ohio-bred college graduate landed in Portland about a year ago, and has been working the underground scene with his brand of light-hearted lyricism and trippy creativity.

His album hVil mVry (pronounced Hail Mary) provides a view of Portland from the perspective of a young creative from the Midwest, and his second video from the project certainly pushes the creativity. Shot on an iPhone 6s, Bryson uses a “visceral swirl” of a eye-popping color and spacey effects to really focus on the concept of The Alien, while making the point that anyone can make their own videos. Very DIY, very niche… Check it out. Production by Low Hiss.
