‘Gaslight’ is the new single from Dublin grunge-rock trio, Bitch Falcon out this Thursday, July 16th on Small Pond Records.

The track premiered on BBC Radio 1 last Sunday and is the band’s debut release of 2020 and their first since signing to Brighton’s Small Pond Records.

An atmospheric introduction begins to glitch before Lizzie’s raw, haunting vocals ghost over textured layers of thunderous percussion and gritty riffs. “I wanted to describe the feeling of what you see is not necessarily what you get.Fitzpatrick declares. Gaslight channels the band’s incredible energy to deliver a blistering statement of intent for 2020.

Check out the track below;

Dublin alt-rock trio Bitch Falcon exploded onto the Irish music scene in 2014. They quickly established themselves on the live circuit through the intensity of their performances, with the snarling vocals and pulsating riffs of lead singer and guitarist Lizzie Fitzpatrick announcing a new sound in Irish rock.

Hard-hitting debut single ‘Wolfstooth’ encapsulated the raw energy of their live shows and brought the band to a wider national audience. During 2015 and 2016 Bitch Falcon’s evolving sound fused together the strongest elements of rock, grunge, metal, hardcore and melodic electro-pop. Follow-up singles ‘Syncope’, ‘TMJ’, ‘Clutch’ and ‘Of Heart’ registered this development and garnered increasing critical acclaim for the band in Ireland and the UK.

Bitch Falcon have honed the frenzy of their live show over the past few years, completing several headline Irish tours along with performing at all the major Irish festivals including Electric Picnic, Other Voices, Body&Soul, Castlepalooza, and Sea Sessions.

The trio have shared the stage with an impressive array of international acts including Fucked Up, Torche, Girl Band, Sleeping With Sirens, The ZZZ’s, Glen Hansard, Fontaines D.C. and Les Butcherettes. Their increasing popularity meanwhile has seen them begin to make an impact in North America, with the band recently packing rooms in Toronto, Montreal and Los Angeles but it is the UK that has developed a serious appetite for the band.

They have travelled the length and breadth of the country and most recently have begun their assault on UK festivals such as The Great Escape, Y Not, Teddy Rocks and 2000 Trees.
