2020’s A Hero’s Death saw Fontaines D.C. land a #2 album in the UK, receive nominations at the GRAMMYs, BRITs and Ivor Novello Awards, and sell out London’s iconic Alexandra Palace.

Now the band return with their third record in as many years: Skinty Fia. Used colloquially as an expletive, the title roughly translates from the Irish language into English as “the damnation of the deer”; the spelling crassly anglicized, and its meaning diluted through generations. Part bittersweet romance, part darkly political triumph - the songs ultimately form a long-distance love letter, one that laments an increasingly privatized culture in danger of going the way of the extinct Irish giant deer.

Fontaines DC march on in style

Superb 3rd album, more reflective in places and almost shoegaze indie feel to show a band developing their style , stand out tracks for me are Roman Holiday and the opening track ( won’t try to quote title as I’ll only get it wrong) - all round lovely sound and bodes well for a band that have now banged out 3 great albums in quick succession !
