Ireland
Rock
Two years on from an initial explosive emergence, the Dublin-based three-piece haven’t so much discovered their voice as honed and refined it. They relish in frenetic declarations, their sound always moving forward while throwing occasional nods to the past. The sonic aesthetic is raw, even a touch frenzied, yet manages to harness the strongest elements of rock, grunge, metal, hardcore and melodic electro-pop. Bitch Falcon’s end result is a distinctive, once-heard-not-forgotten voice. Pulsating tracks like ‘Wolfstooth’, ‘Breed’ and ‘TMJ’ are indicative of a band unwilling to sit still and stay quiet. These are songs of punch, grit and verve. They make an even greater impact up close and personal as the band’s deserved reputation as one of Ireland’s most engaging live prospects comes alive. In their short time together, the trio have shared the stage with the likes of Fucked Up, Torche, The ZZZ’s, Glen Hansard, Les Butcherettes, No Spill Blood and Red Enemy, unapologetically stealing the spotlight at every turn. After a busy 2016 where they stormed the stages of Body & Soul, Indiependence, Knockanstockan & Electric Picnic; Bitch Falcon will take flight for Canadian Music Week and other international events in 2017 as well as releasing brand new material throughout the year.
