Bishop Briggs releases electropop single "Pray (Empty Gun)"

Following her appearance at Ontario's WAYHOME festival, Bishop Briggs (fka BISHOP) releases her new single "Pray (Empty Gun)" to much blog fanfare. The net-banger pits In Return-era  Odeszian synths strained through recuperated trap beats, courtesy of producer duo MJ&iRoK, with the cosmopolitan voice of LA-transplant Briggs.

Bishop Briggs unveils gospel-tinged new single "The Way I Do"

The first thing that truly stands about Bishop Briggs is her striking voice, a goosebump-inducing bellow that sizzles with a soaring gospel feel. Comparisons to Florence and the Machine are inevitable, but Briggs gives her new single “The Way I Do” a different treatment: the neo-soul anthem uses a trap-influenced beat to express her utmost desires in a simple and effective manner, anchored by an impeccable soundscape that agrees with her sanguine delivery. She’ll potentially be filling up stadiums in no time.

“The Way I Do” is currently streaming on your favorite streaming service. Briggs will also make a few live appearences in mid-August, where she’ll be opening for two nights at the Rose Bowl for saccharine stalwarts Coldplay.
