GRIAN CHATTEN – ” The Score “

Posted: May 3, 2023 in MUSIC

Fontaines D.C. frontman Grian Chatten has shared his debut solo single – listen to “The Score” The stripped-back intimate track sees the Irish singer “shift his creative process from a collaborative endeavour to a solely introspective one”, per a press release. It was produced by Chatten and Dan Carey, the latter of whom helmed all three Fontaines albums to date.

“You know the score/ It ain’t limited to your knowing looks and touches anymore,” Chatten sings over acoustic guitar before a minimal electronic beat kicks in. “Cuz when you make his love you turn alone/ You see your heart’s been tethered to a sinking stone.”

Speaking about the single in a statement, the vocalist explained: “‘The Score’ is a heavyweight bated breath of lust. I wrote it in Madrid between an electric fan and a dying plant and I intend to keep it there. It was inspired by sugar and sunset.”

The song arrives with a trippy accompanying video, which was directed and produced by Georgie Jesson. It is not yet known whether “The Score” will feature on an album, EP or wider solo project from Chatten.

Last month saw Chatten appear on an edition of Sleaford Mods’ online talk show Late Night With Jason. The Fontaines D.C. singer phoned in from Australia where the band were touring earlier this year.

Fontaines D.C’s third and most recent studio record, “Skinty Fia“, came out in April 2022. It gave the band their first Number One on both the official UK and Irish album charts.
