Fontaines D.C. is a post-punk band from Dublin, Ireland, that emerged in 2017 with their debut album "Dogrel." The band's music is characterized by driving guitar riffs, rhythmic basslines, and frontman Grian Chatten's distinctive vocal style. Their lyrics often explore themes of identity, youth, and the urban landscape, delivering a raw and powerful commentary on contemporary society. Since their debut, Fontaines D.C. have become known for their dynamic live performances and have garnered critical acclaim, earning nominations for multiple awards, including a Mercury Prize nomination for their second album "A Hero's Death" in 2020. The band continues to evolve and push boundaries with their music, cementing their status as one of the most exciting and innovative bands in the post-punk revival.
Fontaines D.C. released their highly anticipated album "Skinty Fia" in 2022. Skinty Fia is an Irish phrase which translates to English as “the damnation of the deer” and the album’s cover art features a deer, plucked from its natural habitat and deposited in the hallway of a home, illuminated by an artificial red glow. The Irish giant deer is an extinct species and the band’s thoughts on Irish identity are central to Skinty Fia. While Dogrel was littered with snapshots of the Dublin characters - like the cabbie in “Boys In The Better Land” - and A Hero’s Death documented the dislocation and disconnection the band felt as they traveled the globe on tour, on Skinty Fia Fontaines D.C. are addressing their Irishness from afar as they recreate new lives for themselves elsewhere. For a band whose hometown courses through their veins - “D.C.” stands for “Dublin City” - the album finds them trying to resolve the need to broaden their horizons with the affection they still feel for the land and people they’ve left behind.
