Bats In The Belfry

Montreal, Quebec

Bats in the Belfry (Stomp Records) is an all female string trio hailing from Montreal. Through mutual friends and other musical projects, these three came together to create haunting, heartwarming and sometimes hilarious songs about the human condition.

This three-piece lady string band can be a little tricky to fit in a box. Folk and blue grass are terms that just don't cut it when you're hit with the mixture of punk influences and pop sensibilities that make their music shine. The Bats keep everyone in the audience on their toes with songs that swing wildly from tempo to tempo. One moment you'll be fighting back a tear as the heartfelt three-part harmonies drag you into the depths of despair, only to be blown away moments later when they kick it into high gear, playing at a furious breakneck pace. Written from the feminine perspective, the songs are empowering, deeply personal and unapologetic. It's this eclectic sound that prompted one fan to give their style a name of it's very own - Darkgrass. It's the one label the Bats are happy to adopt. Stop by the next time they're playing - it won't take long for you to see just how well it fits.

Above all else, Bats in the Belfry are a hardworking trio. Based out of Montreal, they formed in 2015 and very quickly earned themselves a devoted following. Pop into St Henri's Bar Des Courcelles (one of their regular spots) and you'll always find a packed room. When they're not swapping instruments mid-set, you've got Alex on guitar, Victoria on mandolin & percussion and Emily on ukulele. With the release of their first album, Hounded, in 2016, fans finally got the chance to take the music home with them. Their songs present tales of the human condition that are at-once hilarious, heartwarming and undeniably haunting.
