Good Day Noir Family,
welcome to Edgar Allan Poets indie music corner. A space dedicated to the best new artists and bands we find around the web. Today’s featured band is Bishopskin and their Single Ave Maria.

Ave Maria is Bishopskin’s Single

I was really impressed by the compositional skills of this band … or rather I should call it a duo since the major architects of this musical project are Tiger Nicholson and James Donovan.

The thing that I liked the most is that the Bishopskins are not afraid to follow their instincts and walk a musical path they have never traveled before.

Their music is the result of many influences ranging from Jazz to Folk, to Rock expertly mixed in an absolutely fantastic sound blend.

Ave Maria is an avant-garde song so beautiful that it has to be listened to several times and savored in small sips like a glass of aged whisky in order to enjoy every little nuance and harmonic detail.

A band to keep under the radar as they produce unique music of the highest quality.

Ave Maria is a story from 1934 of Old man England and his vision on the Moor.
The band wrote this song to join the canon of mythology and ancient tales surrounding the old Moors of England.
Inspired by William Blake inspired by Christ. Sharing his vision of Jerusalem built in England’s hills where the moors, the caves and the islands hold in their soil ancient bones and relics of holy men and women, where apparitions and visions or Maria reside, among these dark satanic mills.

Initially formed in 2020 as a lockdown project by vocalist Tiger Nicholson and guitarist James Donovan (also of HMLTD), Bishopskin expanded into an 8-piece outfit when performing live and have collaborated with a number of familiar names from the London scene, including Alex White (Fat White Family), Seth Evans (Black Midi), and Duc Peterman (HMLTD). This is a long way from their beginnings, when their first single Worship II, followed by debut EP Ye Olde Britland Isle Bishopskin hit Spotify and immediately started making waves. The love and commitment of fans who immediately caught onto the fact that this was something truly new propelled Bishopskin into a year during which they played to packed rooms at iconic London venues.

Their recent singles offer a tantalising taster of the album the band is currently busy recording in the studio, showcasing their unique style and impressive range. Folk and blues influences blend with a brand of powerful mayhem which has its roots in punk and noise, deep, introspective lyrics guide the transition from thrumming, soulful rock into airy, layered ballad. All is brought together by Bishopskin’s own trademark earthy, expressive vocals and virtuoso guitar riffs. It is an experience that goes beyond music – a daring exploration of feeling and voice that seems in places to break the boundaries of performance art.

With their unique choice of style and themes, Bishopskin challenge us to engage with a spiritual experience of the world at a time when spirituality is a dangerous theme to approach.
