5 SPOT: Five "It Girls" On The Rise
Just look at her. She already looks like a complete badass.
And would you have guessed she lived in London (born to Scottish parents from Bishopbriggs), Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Los Angeles? And the first time she ever sang in front of a crowd was at a Karaoke bar in Tokyo?
Listening to “River” was the first Bishop Briggs song to ignite my interest. The lyric “Like a river” starts off being rewinded for a cool effect and you get a dark electro pop song with a mood that’s intense, confrontational, and fierce. The claps, tambourine, electric guitar, and distorted vocals remind me how successfully they can all be employed, very much like the Black Keys. As other listeners have pointed out, they see it as a perfect fit for a road trip or the True Detective soundtrack. And I can completely see that future success happening for Ms. Briggs.
