Have a listen to Dublin trio Bitch Falcon‘s new single, Clutch
The follow-up to last summer’s critically acclaimed ‘TMJ’ comes with an appropriate title. Immediately reaching out and grasping with a wall of noise that would give the finest metalcore titans pause for thought, ‘Clutch’ quickly settles into a dark groove and refuses to let go.
An introspective look at intrusive thoughts, this four-minute distillation of the band’s volatile-yet-hypnotic sound introduces new elements in the form of electronic textures and synth-based layers. Once more, Bitch Falcon aggressively capture a specific, uncompromising state of mind with Lizzie Fitzpatrick’s searching vocals a guiding light against a typically bruised, always engaging backdrop.
Recorded at Orphan Recording Studios and Asylum Studios/Bow Lane over a two-day period, ‘Clutch’ was engineered and mixed by Robin Ball, who previously worked with the band on ‘Wolfstooth’ and ‘Breed’. Fergal Davis handled mastering duties, following on from his work on ‘TMJ’. A video exploring the song’s narrative and theme is set to follow.
Bitch Falcon will be performing at a number of festivals this summer:
Body & Soul, June 17 – 19, Ballinlough Castle, Westmeath
Sea Sessions, June 24 – 26 Bundoran, Donegal
Indiependence, July 29 – 31, Deer Farm, Mitchelstown, Cork
Music City, July 4 – 10, Derry
