The alternative pop artist shot the video in his home earlier this year.
Irish alt-pop sensation St. Bishop has shared his latest single, a cry-on-the-dance floor pop track called 'Close'.
“I wrote this song about one of those whirlwind romances that immediately sweeps you off of your feet and plunges you into a world where nothing else matters," St. Bishop explains. "It was a passionate romance that quickly ignited but just as quickly burnt out. We met on the dance floor at Pride, dancing towards each other, moving through the crowd, and eventually met face to face in the middle of the dance floor – think the Cinderella Story starring Hillary Duff and Chad Michael Murray but with a lot more vodka.”
Unfortunately, timing couldn't have been worse – his new love interest emigrated for work. The romance, which only lasted a couple weeks, left its mark, and St. Bishop was stuck in a no-man's-land.
Born in a pre-pandemic world and finished in lockdown via zoom, the single is about longing for what's already gone. Filled with bold, unapologetic statements made along a journey of self-exploration, the track is produced by Sean Behan, co-produced by St. Bishop and mixed and mastered by Stephen Lovatt. Each element of the track is naturally sprinkled with the charm and sass of a young gay man who not only embraces, but adores his queer identity.
