LISTEN: Bitch Falcon – ‘Martyr’

A savage blend of visceral vocals, grungy guitars and powerhouse percussion, Dublin trio Bitch Falcon have shared their latest single ‘Martyr’. The third single to be lifted from their debut album Staring At Clocks, which is set for release via Brighton label Small Pond on 6th November, the band effortlessly combine the racing energy of post-punk beats with the melodic elements of grunge on this new offering.

“Nigel’s drumming reminds me of Warpaint in this, it has such a bounce to it,” explains Bitch Falcon’s vocalist and guitarist Lizzie Fitzpatrick. “I tried to span my vocals from soft to cord-ripping, a bid to show the aggression in the song.” Fitzpatrick’s ability to deliver soft lines and ear-shredding screams at the flick of a switch is what makes ‘Martyr’ such a powerful tune. Underscored by Nigel Kenny’s heavy yet buoyant drumming and Barry O’Sullivan’s brooding bass lines, the single demands repeated listens to fully appreciate each of these formidable elements.

GUEST PLAYLIST: Bitch Falcon

Formed of Lizzie Fitzpatrick (vocals/guitar), Barry O’Sullivan (bass) and Nigel Kenny (drums), Bitch Falcon have been firm favourites of GIHE since they played live for us at The Finsbury Pub supporting Trash Kit in 2017. Since then, the Dublin-based trio have shared stages with the likes of Girl Band, Fontaines DC, Black Peaks and Pussy Riot, and now they’re gearing up to release their debut album Staring At Clocks via Small Pond Records on 6th November.

After repeatedly listening to their latest single ‘Gaslight’, we asked the band to put together a playlist of some of their favourite tunes. Featuring artists like Ultraista, CLT DRP, Big Thief, HAVVK, Brittany Howard, Percolator and Phoebe Bridgers, it’s an eclectic mix of International and Irish music that’s kept the trio going during a time when they’ve been mostly prevented from making music together.
