Fontaines DC – Big

Fontaines DC – the band this country has been crying out for – have been receiving ecstatic reviews for their brilliant new album ‘Dogrel’. And proper order.

If The Fall and The Strokes had had a lovechild born in the Rotunda, then it might have sounded something like frontman Grian Chatten’s crew.

Now they’re taking things to the next level with the news that they’re set to gatecrash American living rooms from sea to shining sea when they appear on CBS’ ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ next Wednesday.

Tickets for their UK tour in November are selling like extremely hot cakes and their two Dublin shows in Vicar St in December have long since sold out.

Nick says: Onwards and upwards, lads.

    I very often dismiss Irish music, but although I think some of the praise is laid on a little thick from the Irish publications, I can’t help but want these to succeed. Like they already have, but hope they can keep it up.

      First Irish band in a long time that I genuinely get excited to hear, and hear others get excited by :)

    These guys are really good.

    Check out Boys in the Better land, Too Real for ya, and Roy’s Tune, all of which have great YouTube videos.

      I love Boys In The Better Land, my favourite on the whole album. It’s the drums, strangely, that do it for me.

        and the line… “spits out ‘Brits Out’ only smokes Carroll’s” :)
        …can’t for the life of me make out the line before that !

      I’m guessing, but it’s probably why they changed the name to “Fonatines DC” …what’s the DC for? Guessing again… ‘Dublin City’

    I don’t get the hype, the album is at best okay, there have been far better debut albums from Irish bands.

    a key change would have been nice. still, under two minutes the way all good pop songs should be..
