FONTAINES D.C. – ” I Love You “

Posted: February 17, 2022 in MUSIC
Fontaines, D.C. share “I Love You” from new album ‘Skinty Fia’

Fontaines D.C.’s “Skinty Fia” is one of the most anticipated albums of the spring ( limited edition, transparent red vinyl), and after having chewed on “Jackie Down the Line” for a month or so, we now have a second single. Using layered, shimmering guitars, the band lay down a dark mood on “I Love You” before the song builds to a full-on roar.

Frontman Grian Chatten says it’s “the first overtly political song we’ve written,” adding, “It’s standing in the center of our beloved home country as a multitude of things are brought to tragic ends in an apocalyptic state of affairs. That’s how it feels to me, and what I felt when I wrote it.” “And I loved you like a penny loves the pocket of a priest, and I’ll love you ‘til the grass around my gravestone is deceased”.

Skinty Fia” is due out April 22 via Partisan Records
