After the release of her 2017 self titled EP, and becoming an immediate indie pop sensation, Bishop Briggs returns with her debut album Church of Scars. The 10 track debut album includes 9 new tracks, and includes her previously released track “Wild Horses” – the first song Bishop Briggs ever released, and a song she says is too important not to include as it shows her growth as a musician.

According to an Alternative Press interview, Bishop Briggs drew writing influence from Tyler Joseph of Twenty One Pilots. Briggs admires the honesty and transparency behind Joseph’s lyrics, saying “I’m someone who loves poetry and metaphors, but you can hide behind them if you’re not careful…” It’s important for listeners to resonate with what artists are writing about, and understand they aren’t untouchable, perfect beings. Bishop explains Twenty One Pilots “really let us into who they are as people and their thoughts on the music industry and mental health.” Bishop Briggs emulates Joseph’s style well, while still staying true to herself and her music. The vulnerability and raw emotion is felt throughout each track, with standout tracks such as “Lyin” and “Water” further exploring themes of self truth. Whether Bishop is talking about an ex, an uncaring person, self identity, persistence, or insecurities, the feelings and experiences discussed on Church of Scars are her own. It’s shocking this is only her debut album, and leaves listeners and fans eager for Bishop Brigg’s future.

5/5 – Personal Picks: “Hi-Lo (Hollow)”, “Lyin'”, “Dream”
