London’s BITCHES share first song from debut full length‏

a0054078653_2London’s BITCHES have shared the first track from their upcoming debut full length. The song is called “Not Old”.


When photos surfaced from BITCHES’ first performance in Los Angeles, it was a bit of a revelation. Swarms of teens, unfazed by swelteringly hot rooms, moshing and crowd-surfing with abandon. How did an unknown band from London step into the brick walled building of the Smell and instantly turn a bunch of strangers into complete animals? While BITCHES’ sound is very well calculated for power, there is also a genuine sense of friendship infused into every chord progression and vocal melody. A sense of friendship that turns their distortion laced roar into a mutual howl of kinship, between both the members of this duo and with their audience. Living and writing their music in London, but yearning for a rural life that seems to escape them, Blake and Staz are best friends turning potential frustration into empowerment. With streamlined compositions that they let dip in and out of a chaotic feedback wall, the metaphor of being the small but confident voice escaping the meaningless clutter of urban living, is intentionally thin. This is the sound of being young and hopeful despite the odds. A sound that invites the listener to join in, without apology.

BITCHES have toured the US 4 times, including performances at SXSW. They have also performed at numerous fests in the UK, Ireland, & Macedonia. Previous releases have appeared on Deathbomb Arc and the Fat Cat imprint Palmist. This will be their first full length album. It is self-titled and will also be self-released. Due October 28th, on vinyl & digital.
