There’s a lot of effective rock music on Bitch Falcon’s long-awaited debut album “Staring At Clocks” moving between atmospheric guitar pedal-assisted sounds and ripping low-end. ‘Turned To Gold’ is my favourite previously-unheard song from the Dublin band’s record.  Bitch Falcon; is a name you won’t forget and a band who won’t let you forget them. This trio from the vibrant, much-hyped music scene of Dublin was formed by front-woman Lizzie Fitzpatrick with her friends in a small kitchen in the city in 2014. Since these freshman days, the line-up has galvanised around the rhythm section of Barry O’Sullivan on Bass and Nigel Kenny on Drums. This is a band that is growing in stature with every release and I want to be part of it. The song writing is very interesting. Very nice bass sound!

BITCH FALCON are a name you will not forget, and a band who will not let you forget them. The acclaimed dream-grunge three-piece have announced their debut LP, “Staring At Clocks”, to be released 6th November via Small Pond Records

‘Sand Dunes’— a new single by Bonniesongs released as a benefit for wildlife charities helping to preserve and restore Australian wildlife following on from the devastation from recent bushfires.

The track is the first piece of new material to be shared since the Australian Irish art-folk virtuoso’s debut album Energetic Mind, released last year through Small Pond Records in the UK and Art As Catharsis in Australia.

According to reports, almost half a billion animals have been impacted by the bushfires in New South Wales brought on by record-breaking temperatures and months of sustained drought. In response, Bonniesongs will donate all proceeds from ‘Sand Dunes’ to WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) a charity whose mission is to actively rehabilitate and preserve Australian wildlife and inspire others to do the same.

Commenting on the track, Bonnie explains: “‘Sand Dunes’ was inspired by a trip I took part in with large improvising ensemble The Splinter Orchestra. We were exploring and recording in the vast natural landscape of Mungo National Park. Mungo is one of the most powerfully resonant environmental and cultural sites in Australia. I found that connecting with the land as well as the sharing of. as the sharing of this connection with like minded artists to be a significant experience in my life. It is in a part a love song for that place and time. In response to the recent bushfire devastation I would like to release this song in honour of Australia’s natural landscape and wildlife”.

Stewart shows a different side to her songwriting craft her, with a dark brooding atmospheric beginning that paves the way for her haunting folk vocals. This atmosphere makes sense when you learn a bit about the mindset she was in when writing the track as described by her below:
This track was inspired by re-watching the original 1968 Night of the Living Dead at a household movie night. I love zombie movies. I noticed how the main woman’s character was a weak crumbling mess that was almost completely useless in the chaos that was happening. Meanwhile, the men were pulling it together and saving everyone. This sort of inequality is typical of this era I guess, but is still annoying! Anyway, the song is mostly told from Barbara’s perspective…”
