hmv's Next Big Thing... #217 Fontaines DC

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Irish rabble-rousers Fontaines DC...

 

Who Are They?

Fontaines DC consist of singer Grian Chatten, bassist Conor Deegan III, guitarists Carlos O'Connell and Conor Curley as well as drummer Tom Coll.

Formed in Dublin in 2014, the quintet rose to prominence with a series of fiery singles and top-drawer support slots. 

Now they've just dropped their debut album Dogrel, an LP made with The Kills/Mystery Jets key man Dan Carey and are in the midst of their biggest ever tour.
