Bishop Briggs: Pray (Empty Gun)
Bishop Briggs, Bishop Briggs… I have been a huge fan of hers since, what feels like, the beginning. I have seen her a couple times live in LA and it only furthers my love for her. She is my queen of dark alternative pop (some people are surprisingly still sleeping on her)… and with her new single “Pray (Empty Gun)” she proves that she is staying on top for everyone to see her.
Greeted by her smoky voice and groovy synth-charged melody that ornaments the whole track, Brigg’s new single is the electrifying, chill-trap track you want after her last powerhouse single. “Pray (Empty Gun)” fully epitomizes her talent as a songwriter. With heartfelt and clever lyrics, not only does she have the ability to pair them with exemplary hook-filled melodies and build each section utterly cohesively, but she is also able to take her strong knowledge in different genres to throw in some interesting twists and turns that keep our ears refreshed.
This single is not the hard-hitter that “River” or “The Way I Do” is, but just like “Wild Horses” her strength is shown in her restraint, and that is the real test of power. This is still the beginning of Bishop Briggs and she has much more to show this world.
Bishop Briggs is currently on tour, making her way through a couple festivals and joining Coldplay for some dates, check it out below. You don’t want to miss her live set.
