FONTAINES D.C – ” Chequeless Reckless “

We’re absolutely loving this new single from Dublin’s Fontaines D.C.

Channelling past masters like the Modern Lovers, The Fall and Iggy Pop, as well as contemporaries like Idles andShameChequeless Reckless is built on a great hypnotic, kraut-rock infused cyclical riff, and some scalpel sharp lyrics.

“Fontaines D.C. are set to open their 2018 account in a way that you’d hope that they would. Kicking off from where they left off last year, with the forthcoming double A Side ‘Chequeless Reckless/ Boys in The Better Land’ are tunes that may well make other acts wonder what’s the point.” Its due for release on Friday 23rd February.  So far we’re pretty damn sure it is going to end up in our end of year best of lists…With a set of snarling, swaggering post-punk tracks filtered through their retro-rock of the early ’00s; with their frontman Grian Chatten.

A sellout is someone who becomes a hypocrite in the name of money,
An idiot is someone who lets their education do all of the thinking
A phony is someone who demands respect for the principles they affect
A dilettante is someone who can’t tell the difference between fashion and style

They are “Dublin’s latest sensations Fontaines earlier tracks 7”. On one side is Hurricane Laughter which is an insistent and repetitive song built on a Mark E Smith style spoken vocal and a band who are locked into a rock n roll groove. The hook of “And there is no connection available” lingers long in your mind after the song has left the building” .

Check it out below, along with previous singles, the almost equally as good Liberty Belle.
