Bitch Falcon’s new single ‘Gaslight’ is out now via Small Pond Records.
Irish alt-rock/grunge trio Bitch Falcon have shared a new single titled ‘Gaslight’. A stomping blast of rumbling bass and thunderous drumming, Lizzie Fitzpatrick’s haunting vocals and what I think are synths in the background offset that ferocity and add a soaring grandeur to the track. The single is the group’s first release since last year’s awesome ‘Damp Breath’ and their latest addition to a succession of epic singles and EPs. Here’s hoping there’s a debut album on the way.
“’Gaslight’ is a song that came together quite fast. Barry (O’Sullivan – bass) started playing his riff and I played along messing rhythmically, just making noise,” says vocalist/guitarist Lizzie Fitzpatrick of the song. “It sounded so weird and intense so quickly. I remember us all looking at each other and saying this is the one. I think this song was a change in our writing together. We knew we wanted a heavy sound with melodic intricacies.
I recorded the vocal layering at home, building up chords with my voice. When we recorded it in the studio, I wasn’t able to sustain my voice for the whole section, so me and Rían (Trench) decided to record it in a wave, one note resting while the other picks up, so it sounds like a living, breathing thing.
I wanted to describe the feeling of what you see is not necessarily what you get. The holy grail of public display, and worth to others. Expressing yourself puts you in a vulnerable position, and I think a lot of people embellish the truth. In that way, an unachievable status is shoved down our throats, and we play into the game every day.”
