Three New Bands (New to me) in 2021: (3) Fontaines D.C.

For the third band in this series we move from Chicago with Beach Bunny to Dublin in Ireland with Fontaines D.C. Again a band that has been around for slightly longer but only really appeared on my radar this year, I think mainly through BBC Radio 6 Music playing them a lot. One of the songs that made me listen up was this one:

Fontaines D.C. – Liberty Belle (Official Music Video)

An earlier song I quite like is Winter in the Sun:

Fontaines D.C. – Winter In The Sun (Official Music Video)

A popular song is Boys In The Better Land:

Fontaines D.C. – Boys In The Better Land (Darklands Version)

To close one of their several KEXP appearances, this one having been filmed “at home” showcasing their latest album:

Fontaines D.C. – Full Performance (Live on KEXP at Home)

And that’s it for this year’s Three New Bands (New to me) series. I hope you enjoyed at least one the bands I discovered this year, maybe even two or three. And hopefully I’ll discover three new bands (even if they’re only new to me) in 2022, so that I can continue the series.
