Consider yourself warned: Bishop Briggs has done it again. The explosive songstress, who currently resides in LA, has just released yet another extremely addictive track. She’s somehow able to turn gospel music into hardcore electronic indie rock jams, and did exactly that with “Pray (Empty Gun).” The song begins slow and swaying, then slides into a roaring chorus that showcases Briggs’ booming vocals. The intro of the track fits in nicely as the prologue to a story about awareness and pity.
She starts by telling the frustratingly compassionate story of giving an undeserving certain someone one too many chances — “I’ve given you damn near every chance to make it possible, have it all, but all you do is build a wall of fears and drown us in your tears” – before reeling the listeners into the surging chorus. With each repeat of the chorus, Briggs blends recognition with mercy as she tells whoever did her wrong, “When my heart’s an empty gun, I’ll pray.” Stream above and let Briggs’ perfectly raw voice tell you the story of love lost and loss forgiven.
