Bishop Briggs is bringing us into the world of her new single “Dream” in her latest music video.
The London-born singer just dropped the simplest music video of the year. Marching around an aesthetically pleasing house, Briggs is joined by an army musicians while belting out the lyrics to “Dream.”
Directed by Dano Cerny — who you might know from directing The Chainsmokers’s video, featuring Halsey, for “Closer” and Elle King’s “Good Girls” video — Briggs is able to rival the #1 charting artists with the video’s quality and story.
In the Wes Anderson-inspired video, Briggs is followed through a never-ending dream. Finding strength to ride out of depth and darkness, Briggs finds a balance between her strength and vulnerability.

“It was really important that ‘Dream’ kept the balance of strength and total vulnerability — which was my exact headspace when it was being written,” said Briggs. “It’s a rare moment when you truly feel that the visual matches the words you’ve written on the paper but I think Dano proves that there can be perfect harmony between the worlds.”
Bishop Briggs has already seen commercial success while attached to Teleport/Island Records with her massive single “River” that has been RIAA-certified gold and received over 40 million global streams.
While she was born in London to her Scottish parents, Briggs grew up in Japan and Hong Kong. Hopping on a flight straight to Los Angles after her high school graduation, she spent years preforming at any venue that would have her. Discovered by a former A&R executive in a tiny venue, Bishop Briggs transcends the limitations of single genres, now blending folk, pop, and electronic music into a uniquely her sound.
An exploding fan base launched Bishop Briggs onto a 10-week tour, including opening for alt-J and Bleachers. You can catch Briggs at the Fillmore in Philadelphia (November 16), the House of Blues in Boston (November 17), Terminal 5 in New York (November 20), and Brooklyn Steel (November 21),
