MUSIC FEATURE: Five Minutes With…Bitch Falcon
Dream-grunge trio Bitch Falcon have cemented themselves as one of the most exciting bands to emerge in recent years, with the recent release of their debut album Staring At Clocks. We caught up with vocalist/guitarist Lizzie Fitzpatrick to discover more about Bitch Falcon, from her first musical memory and influences, to the band’s ambitions and upcoming plans.
Firstly, tell us a bit about yourself and your band.
We’re Bitch Falcon, a heavy grungy band from Ireland. I’m Lizzie; singer and guitarist.
How did the band form and how long have you been together?
We formed years ago, about seven years ago in my kitchen in Stoneybatter. The band was formed by previous guitarist and singer, Fia Kavanagh, and I.
Can you remember the first time you realised you wanted to make music?
I was that corny kid that used a tennis racket as a guitar jumping on my bed, so about forever really!
Who and what are the band’s main influences?
I love a lot of the weirder side of pop; The Knife, Bjork, Angel Olsen, Beach House, Cocteau Twins, Kate Bush, and David Bowie.
What do you aim to achieve as a band?
I’d like to travel the world and be able to meet loads of like-minded people. I’d love to continue to write albums and if people loved them as I do, that would be great.
For those who are yet to see you live, what can they expect from a Bitch Falcon show?
We get fairly stuck into the music. It’s really loud and I can get sucked in, forgetting everything other than what’s in front of me. Even if you don’t like our music I can give a good captivating performance.
What’s next for Bitch Falcon?
Wait for this to all blow over and we can tour again… and WRITE!
