Mrs Bishop are two Sydney based bros doing some rather big dreamy pop music. The boys, Oscar and Hugo are in fact Swedish gents, and grew up in the UK before moving to Sydney town.

I’m not sure how much of an influence their country of origin has on their life, but man does it have an influence on their music. So much so they’ve also done a cover of the pretty raucous hate To Say I Told You So by fellow Swedes, The Hives turning it into this small introspective sounding piece with these ethereal vocals.

The boys have got a new single out though, called Broken Wing. Produced by Tony Espie (Midnight Juggernauts, Jinja Safari, The Avalanches), it is a well crafted pop track with the subtle opening of vocals and the slow build into something bigger. Reminds me a fair bit of Diamonds by Dancing Heals which we featured a while ago, especially in it’s structure. It’s also a very warm production – everything here kinda soothes you – nothing appears out of place.

We got a stream of Broken Wing below as well as their cover of Hate To Say I Told You So. Also make sure you check out the clip for Broken Wing.
