About Fontaines D.C.
Fontaines D.C. are a post-punk band reclaiming a certain pre-punk innocence. Their origin story is so quaint and anachronistic, it verges on flaneur cosplay, with the quintet reportedly bonding over a mutual love of Joycean poetry and pub nights spent scribbling out and reciting verses to one another. That old-school approach finds its analog in a raw, robust twin-guitar attack, nodding to ‘60s garage, surf, and early rock‘n’roll while projecting a confrontational fury. Their debut album Drogel was released by Partisan Records in 2019.
