Singer-songwriter and charismatic frontman GRIAN CHATTEN
of Dublin idols Fontaines D.C. has shared his solo debut, titled

Press info: “Each song here has a sweep of colour and textures that breathe life into his lucid tales. Over its nine tracks, Chaos For The Fly is a record that takes in all of life’s rich emotions, transporting the listener to a place you not only want to visit, but will find yourself returning to again and again.”

The Guardian (British newspaper):Chatten dials down the rollicking post-punk of
the Dublin band with a solo debut of haunted, Leonard Cohen-esque songs. ‘On Chaos
for the Fly’, Chatten’s manner sometimes recalls those great critics of human nature
Leonard Cohen and Elliott Smith.
” Score: 4/5.

TUTV: As we already could here and there on Fontaines D.C. albums Chatten dims
the lights, and lets his both melancholic and unsettled heart do the talking/singing.
Here he does it from start to finish. He sings about all things life, good and bad here
on his solo debut. He’s a romantic and muses about what’s on his mind and soul. Candlelight music for tranquillising moments. Nothing more, nothing less.

Have sweet dreams.

FONTAINES D.C.’s Romantic At Heart GRIAN CHATTEN Shares Another Track From Upcoming Solo Debut LP

Reveries for the laziest day of the week

Singer-songwriter and charismatic frontman GRIAN CHATTEN
of Dublin heroes Fontaines D.C. has shared another – the third – track from
his upcoming solo debut album, named Chaos For The Fly. It lands on June 30.

LAST TIME EVERY TIME FOREVER is as moody and meditative
as the two previous singles Fairlies and The Score.

Chatten: “The song a weak knee’d 99th lap around a hellscape town
of your own making. It’s haunted by seagulls and hoarse-throated slot
machines from the 1980s and it breaks its own promise on every listen.”

I have no idea what Chatten talks about (above), but I’m sure, for
a while now, that he’s a romantic at heart. Here’s another proof.

FONTAINES D.C. Singer-Songwriter GRIAN CHATTEN Shared Another Track From Upcoming Solo Debut LP

New striking strokes

6 May 2023

Singer-songwriter and charismatic frontman GRIAN CHATTEN
of Dublin heroes Fontaines D.C. has released his debut solo
single, the moody musing titled The Score, last week.

It’ll feature on his debut solo LP, named Chaos For The Fly,
out June 30. So will do this new taster called FAIRLIES.

Chatten: “I wrote ‘Fairlies’ in intense heat. Partly in Jerez, Spain,
partly in LA a couple of days before a Fontaines D.C. tour kicked off.
It was a quick write, and I believe I celebrated each line with a beer.”

Fairlies is a catchy acoustic-guitar-driven pop song, beautifully
orchestrated and arranged with weeping violins, and Chatten‘s
by-now-familiar vocals upfront.

Press play.
