Dublin post-punk band Bullet Girl have released a new single 'Hatred', with an album release planned later this year.
North Dublin post-punk band Bullet Girl just released their hard-hitting new song ‘Hatred’. A song about online trolls, which they find particularly fitting right now.
Songwriter and lead guitarist Dylan Keenan explains: “The song is a rally cry against the hatred that the internet age has conjured up; the ability of people to participate in hate speech under the cover of anonymity. Angry little soldiers with ideologies built on insecurity.
"When you see far-right political leaders gain support across the western world and hateful attacks against minorities and racial groups at both a local and global level becoming the norm,” he adds: “sometimes it does make you worry if the schoolyard bullies have won? This is not happening a million miles away, it’s happening right outside our door,” Keenan says.
A seriously energetic live band, Bullet Girl blew the crowd away at TiLT in The Button Factory. On the back of this, they have been asked to support The Mystrines at Eastbound Dublin. This show has been postponed due to pandemic restrictions but is rescheduled to go ahead on Thursday, September 24 at The Workman’s Club.
There’s no denying that Ireland’s post-punk scene is thriving at the moment. With the recently released coruscating post-punkery from Limrock's Pity Of The Sea, Bullet Gril is a nice addition to the ever growing list.
‘Hatred’ is Bullet Girl’s fifth single, with an album planned for later this year.
