Bishop Briggs

Bishop Briggs is my new obsession. It takes an extraordinarily impressive artist to break through the chaos of life as we now know it and lure me to listen to a full album—let alone write about it. Bishop Briggs’ new self-titled release is that album.

Bishop Briggs is the stage name of 25-year old British musician Sarah Grace McLaughlin.

Her music is truly unique. You can compare elements of her robust voice and trippy beats to Lorde, The Mynabirds, VV Brown, and Ibeyi, but there’s no one artist that sums up her complex and alluring sound.

“Wild Horses” is the album’s spectacularly multi-faceted centerpiece. Other standout tracks are “River” and “Dead Man’s Arms,” but it’s an album I’ve enjoyed listening to all the way through on repeat. Definitely one for my best of the year list.
