Fontaines D.C. Sign To Partisan Records, Share Video For New Single ‘Too Real’
Fontaines D.C. is a name you might already be familiar with, or at least a name you’ll be hearing a lot more of. This crew of Irish lads deliver their infectious, post-punk chaos with pure conviction. They sing, you listen. It’s powerful stuff.
The lyrics from ‘Chequeless Reckless’ which was released earlier this year is a good place to start - ‘Charisma is exquisite manipulation / And money is the sandpit of the soul’. These guys aren’t here to tell a pretty story, they’re keeping things real. Which takes us to our next point, their latest single ‘Too Real’.
Today they have revealed that they’ll be joining the Partisan Records family (IDLES, Body Type etc) and shared the video for their new single. Let us return to the intelligent lyricism once more with the opening lyric, “None can pull the passion loose from youth’s ungrateful hands” - a line that takes 1 minute 30 to reach, amidst a storm of swirling instrumentals. Directed by Hugh Mulhern, the clip effortlessly reflects the crazed, but down to earth and refreshing sound that is Fontaines D.C.
