Fontaines D.C. don’t have an album yet, but they’ve been putting out singles here and there, including the highly-addictive, anxious “Hurricane Laughter.” (SEE BELOW)
Today, Stereogum premiered the latest single from Fontaines D.C., “Chequeless Reckless,” from a forthcoming double A-side with “Boys In The Better Land.” “The straightforward, buzzing track finds Chatten adopting a sneering sing-speak vocal approach in the school of Mark E. Smith. It’s sneakily catchy, with Chatten repeating a few cultural examinations in his Irish drawl before he gets to the concluding refrain of “What’s really going on?” ”
Totally badass and will be in my earbuds all day.
The “Chequeless Reckless” / “Boys In The Better Land” single is out 2/23. Pre-order it here.
