Bitch Falcon - Of Heart

Dublin-based Bitch Falcon‘s new single “Of Heart” has just been released and it’s a slab of trashy and relentless slab of rock and roll fuzz meeting poppy vocal hooks.  Think crashing riffs building to a crescendo of filthy noise over six minutes of driving beat. [soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/348531852″] Backed by a big reputation for live shows, …
