Three years on from an initial explosive emergence, the Dublin-based three-piece haven’t so much discovered their voice as relentlessly refined it. If anything, they relish in sharp declarations, their signature sound always moving forward even when throwing a nod to the past.
The aesthetic is raw, even a touch frenzied, yet the chaos is controlled in a ferocious through line that harnesses the strongest elements of rock, grunge, metal, hardcore and melodic electro-pop. Through it all, Bitch Falcon make this busy mix sing in a distinctive, once-heard-not-forgotten voice.
Pulsating tracks like ‘Wolfstooth’, ‘Syncope’, ‘TMJ’ and ‘Clutch’ speak to a band unwilling to sit still and stay quiet. These are songs of punch, grit and verve. Up close and personal, they make an even greater impact as the band’s deserved reputation as one of Ireland’s most engaging live prospects comes to the fore.
In their short time together, the trio have shared the stage with the likes of Fucked Up, Torche, The ZZZ’s, Glen Hansard, Fucked Up, No Spill Blood and Les Butcherettes, unapologetically stealing the spotlight at every turn.
After a busy 2016 where they stormed the stages of Body & Soul, Indiependence, Knockanstockan, Electric Picnic and HWCH, Bitch Falcon have already released two singles in 2017 to much acclaim. A busy 2017 lies ahead with multiple trips to the UK as well as touring the festival circuit at home and abroad including appearances at CMW in Toronto.
