Stirring up interest across the continent come Fontaines DC, a five-piece from Dublin with their snarling post-punk.
The new single Chequeless Reckless appears on a double-A 7″ alongside Boys In The Better Land. With his distinctive drawl, frontman Grian Chatten sneer and glower his way through a Smith-esque rant. “Money, the sandpit of the soul”, he reiterates. Later, it’s “What’s really going on” as the bass thumps and the guitars soar and swirl around. Instant fandom.
