I first posted about Ireland’s Fontaines D.C. last November and I have been playing them incessantly since. They’ve finally announced their debut LP for 4/19 via the fine folks at Partisan Records. Here’s an interesting passage via Partisan’s site.

one word has kept resurfacing in their characteristically eloquent yet direct interviews: authenticity. “I think there’s an authenticity to what we do, and people have been starved of authenticity for too long,” Grian Chatten (vocals) said in one early Irish radio encounter. Not youthful bravado, but a truthful reflection of the shared code that has guided these five young best friends thus far, with what has occasionally seemed a preternatural combination of insouciance and self-belief. This commitment to the authentic, in their music and in each other, is key to understanding the Fontaines D.C. aesthetic.
