Over the last year, FONTAINES D.C. have released five critically acclaimed singles, all of which garnered considerable support both from radio, with the band A-listed at BBC Radio 6 Music for their last single Big, and from a vast range of international press, with the band featuring in a number of end of year lists and receiving high praise from the press.
Now, following the announcement of their highly-anticipated debut album Dogrel, the band have shared a video for their new single Roy’s Tune.
The accompanying video, directed by Liam Papadachi and featuring IFTA (Irish Film and Television Academy) award-winning actor Dafhyd Flynn, is a quiet and soulful portrayal of a day in the life of a young family, struggling to make ends meet, and coming to terms with how their lives have now changed after the birth of their baby girl. It’s a poignant and gentle ode to perseverance (or ‘hanging on’), matching the lament and hopeful optimism of the single.
See them perform at Leeds Stylus on November 22nd and The Leadmill in Sheffield on November 23rd.
