The latest single from Bishop Briggs is an outspoken ode to dodging the BS and going off the grid.
Bishop Briggs is back with “SOMEONE ELSE”, a character-packed, powerful tune that will satisfy your deepest feels. This latest soul-baring song continues an emotional rollercoaster of releases this past year from Briggs, following her poignant debut album, Church of Scars, and a series of singles that convey her honest and intimate yet unapologetically strong experience of the world. Furthermore, whether sipping tea on lost love, inconsistency, or belting out a ballad about her claim to independence, Bishop Briggs’ signature talent always leaves the distinct feeling that you too can crush it at life, all the while being a sentimental, sometimes sad or heavy-hearted human person.
“SOMEONE ELSE” is a perfect example of Briggs’ bold lyricism, combined with powerful crescendos, melodic fullness and of course her signature raw vocal talent. Beyond that, Briggs herself points out that this may, in fact, be her most personal song so far, expressing the conscious decision to include the vocal take where she is in actual tears: “It’s not perfect but it’s honest and it’s real,” she says, “Thank you for taking the time to listen.”
Her sophomore album, CHAMPION, is out in just a few days on November 8th; be sure to keep your eyes and ears out for what will, in all likelihood, be a very special collection of tunes.
