The debut solo album from Tobiasz Biliński (aka Perfect Son), 2019's Cast finds the Polish musician digging deep into his darkly textured brand of progressive electronic rock. Co-produced by Biliński and Marcin Buźniak with additional production by Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, the War on Drugs), the album has a cinematic slow burn that often feels like a goth-rock opera circa 1988. Prior to recording Cast, Biliński pursued a dual trajectory, playing in the experimental trio Kyst, as well as the synthy, '80s-influenced Coldair.

Polish musician Tobiasz Biliński previously made a handful of records under the moniker Coldair, which largely showcased gentle, guitar-led ballads in the vein of Nick Drake. On third album, 'The Provider', though, he turned to synths and drum machines - which caught the attention of American label Sub Pop. Nearly three years later, Tobiasz has now adopted the title Perfect Son (taken from the title of a song on 'The Provider'), fully embracing the dark, industrial indie sound signposted by his previous effort, and is now the first Pole to sign with the legendary Seattle rock label.
