Bishop Briggs, one of the newest talents on Island Records roster, has recently released her debut album, Church of Scars. The London born, Los Angeles based singer/songwriter first broke through the airwaves (and all of our playlists!) with her hit “River”. While the single was straight fire (see for yourself below!), you won’t want to snooze on her new music.
Church of Scars, which is a fast paced collection at 33 minutes, features ten tracks that span from soulful, alternative, acoustic guitar numbers (‘Water’) to full on electro-pop dance numbers (‘Wild Horses’) all with a bit of edginess. Each track is anchored by Briggs’ gospel tinged voice and highly emotional lyrics. Most evident on tracks like ‘River’, the opener ‘Tempt My Trouble’ ‘Lyin’ & ‘The Fire’.
Overall the album is very cohesive with the overarching theme being love and pain; something most, if not all, can identify with. So Church of Scars is aptly named and an absolute must listen. Check out a few of our favorites below and let us know what track you think will be her next big hit.
