Bitch Falcon Release New Studio Track

‘Panther’ is the latest studio recording from Bitch Falcon, streaming from Friday. “‘Panther’ is about being blind in the present, letting everything around you move on as you sit dwelling in numbness. It’s a realisation that you’re stuck in between your emotions and physical reactions come first before really understanding how you feel.” says vocalist, Lizzie.

Four years on from an initial emergence, the Dublin-based three-piece haven’t so much discovered their voice as relentlessly refined it. 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 voice.

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, No Spill Blood, Pussy Riot, and Les Butcherettes.

Skating Polly Announce October Tour

US punk rock trio Skating Polly have announced details of a new European tour kicking off this October, including a string of live dates across the UK.

Alongside the tour news the band have also shared a new single ‘Flyer’, the counter-part to track "Play House" which the band dropped at the start of the month. ‘Flyer’ sees siblings Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse share vocal duties whilst Kurt Mayo drums, on a track that contrasts bright pop sensibilities with their characteristic boisterous and bold grunge tinged punk.

Commenting on the track, Kelli said: ‘Flyer’ is about this overwhelming self-consciousness and agoraphobia that’s been hitting me a lot lately. I was scared to leave the house, scared to see my friends, scared to make decisions of any kind. That led to writers block because I wouldn’t stick with any choices. So I made a deal with myself. ‘Play House’ was gonna be a straight forward song structure with playful and abstract lyrics and ‘Flyer’ would have a very abstract song structure and very personal sincere lyrics. Peyton wrote my favourite part of the whole song; “I’ve had more than enough time to learn what I felt was not a thought crime”.
