Fontaines D.C. back with new single ‘Jackie Down The Line’
Jackie Down The Line
Fontaines D.C. is back with the excellent new single ‘Jackie Down The Line’ on which the band sounds looser and dreamier than ever. On April 22, 2022, the Irish band will release their third studio album, Skinty Fia. Hugh Mulhern has directed a music video for the first single starring multidisciplinary artist, MC and dancer Blackhaine. Check out the video.
Marrying a seeker’s mind with a minstrel’s spirit, Ireland’s Fontaines D.C. have emerged head and shoulders above a generation of plucky post-punk upstarts to become one of the finest emerging bands around. Their latest album ‘A Hero’s Death’ was a confident next step in their continued transcendence, augmenting their wiry, noise-laden sonics with flourishes of West Coast pop and picturesque balladry.
For 'Skinty Fia' the band again teamed up with producer Dan Carey. On ‘Skinty Fia’, the band promises echoes of their debut album 'Dogrel's' boisterous rock 'n' roll and the bleaker atmospheres of 'A Hero's Death', but 'Skinty Fia'. However, the third Fontaines D.C. album will be much more expansive and cinematic. Fontaines D.C. is a band in a state of constant evolution and this time the result is an album of fluctuating moods, surprising insight, maturity and a big emotional blow.
During the weekend of June 10-11-12 2022, Fontaines D.C. will play Best Kept Secret
