Irish electro-pop artist St. Bishop is back with his new single, ‘Dreaming’, which will be released on Friday 23rd October on VETA Music.
We last heard from St. Bishop when he lent guest vocals to labelmate DYVR’s track ‘Ocean’ in May – a song that garnered airplay on the likes of BBC Radio Ulster, RTÉ 2fm and PlayIrish and caught the ears of publications like Nialler9 and GCN.
St. Bishop – A.K.A. Stephen Bishop – is originally from Co. Monaghan, but has been living in Dublin since his days as a BIMM student. Blending his roots in rural Ireland, soul and electro-pop he confidently tackles issues of sexuality, gender identity and radical self-acceptance.
St. Bishop says that he wrote ‘Dreaming’ as a sort of apology to an ex. He says: “This song reflects on a previous relationship of mine and discusses how not being open and honest with my feelings and not communicating properly ended up putting a huge strain on the relationship and pushed us apart. It’s an apology and a showing of gratitude. A moment to say I am sorry for how the situation was handled, to let them know that I still want them to be a part of my life and that ‘I am still dreaming’ about them.”
‘Dreaming’ by St. Bishop is out on Friday 23rd October 2020.
