Brand new sonic impulses…
Along with Idles and Shame Irish gang FONTAINES D.C. leads the revival of fervent punk rock annex acute social criticism. “It’s more confusing than it was before – there’s just a huge lack of trust in any form of media or narrative voice.

Following last year’s release of some blazing debut tracks their first longplayer, titled DOGREL will hit the streets on 12 April. Here’s ahead of it the lead single BIG. A short, speedy and agitated tirade tackling the pressure of ambition. In the accompanying clip
the protagonist is a young kid in the streets of Dublin. ““We felt that great ambition was a sickness, and we got singer Grian’s 11-year next-door neighbour to say it to you all because
he’s got the presence of a hundred frontmen”.
