Premiere: Bishop Battle – “Visceral”

We’re happy to premiere “Visceral,” the latest track from Bishop Battle, the Cincinnati-based artist who impressed previously with “Fly Away.” Showing a nocturnal atmospheric pull in the initial verses, “Visceral” captivates right away, holding some reminiscence to acts like Erasure and Depeche Mode. The chorus introduces a vocal yearning with more anthemic percussive spirit, the uptick in vocal intensity and general melodic involvement resulting in an effervescent burst of sorts. As such, “Visceral” succeeds in alternating between fairly nocturnal verses and a catchy, relatively more lit-up hook. Look out for another release from Bishop Battle early next year.
