Bishop Briggs is one of those artists that reminds you how hard it is to write about music without simply labeling the sound as “Alternative” or comparing the act to a mix of This Band vs That Style.
Her Twitter bio reads, “RIVER is out now + WILD HORSES was out then” letting you know she works fast and that if you want to see what’s coming next you’d better pay attention.
Gaining some well deserved attention with her first single Wild Horse last October (even landing a commercial deal with Acura for the track), Bishop released her second single River earlier last month. Though it may not be seeing the same commercial attention (Yay! Homonyms!) as her first, this second single is an anthem for haunting vocals and trap-esque alt-soul craziness.
And if you like what you hear, her live set tomorrow night for @ItsASchoolNight will be broadcast live on Periscope!
