"Snarling, Swaggering Post Punk" - Stereogum
"The energy, the urgency and the emotion of these brilliant new songs made me stand up and take notice that this is the band I've been waiting for" - KEXP
"I've played this about 15 times since yesterday. It's a bit like hearing Idles for the first time. I really think there's something here" - Steve Lamacq
Fontaines D.C. met as a quintet in Dublin, influenced and driven in equal measure by the rich history of their hometown’s counter-culture, their response has been to make concise and immediately authentic indie-punk that has done anything but fall on deaf ears.
They've earned a reputation for brooding and trenchant live performances, supporting the likes of The Horrors, Girl Band and The Lemon Twigs, as well as playing festival slots at Electric Picnic, Hard Working Class Heroes and Other Voices.
Previous singles such as ‘Liberty Belle’ and ‘Hurricane Laughter’ call to mind the likes of the Modern Lovers, The Fall, Iggy Pop and The Strokes, seamlessly blending immediate lyrical hooks with melodic golden-era indie instrumentation, and ‘70s Stooges punk thrust, all of which is strewn with defiant rock and roll overtones.
