Fontaines D.C. "Dogrel" (2019)
LP (NEW) - Vinyl, Partisan Records, Europe, 2019, PTKF2166-1, First Issue, Incl. Digital Download
Dogrel shows a true, raw approach to post-punk and pub rock. After hearing this, it’s easy to see why they’re one of the best bands to emerge from the new European rock movement. The rock tropes present are all refreshed between the almost spoken word/shouted vocal style of Grian Chatten, and the accompanying onslaught of drums and post-punk guitars. The lyrics range from politics to Irish culture to sometimes pure symbolism, all of which is charming as it is infectious. The band picked up critical attraction immediately with their album cuts "Liberty Belle" and the standout "Boys in the Better Land". The latter of which they performed at the Mercury Prize awards, acting as a benchmark for the band in their efforts to breakthrough into the up and coming scene alongside IDLES and Black Midi.
