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, Girl Band, The ZZZ’s, Glen Hansard,No Spill Blood and Les Butcherettes, unapologetically stealing the spotlight at every turn.
By the end of 2017, Bitch Falcon will have packed rooms in Toronto and Montreal for Canadian Music Week and POP, released 3 singles, played numerous shows in the UK and featured in festivals like Electric Picnic, Other Voices, Castlepalooza, Sea Sessions and completed two headline Irish tours.
