Watch Fontaines DC share ‘Roman Holiday’ video

Photo: Sam Taylor

It follows the release of their third album ‘Skinty Fia’.

Following the release of their latest album ‘Skinty Fia’ back in April, Fontaines DC are sharing the video for LP cut ‘Roman Holiday’.

Directed Sam Taylor, Sam says the video is “the result of attempting to challenge the monarchy and watching too much of The Rockford Files.”

In our five-star review of ‘Skinty Fia’, we wrote, “For those who missed the rabble-rousing of ‘Dogrel’ but liked the darkness of ‘A Hero’s Death’, this record splits the perfect difference, sealing it along the middle with the superglue of a band who now know exactly where they’re going. Truth be told, they’ve never been more at home.”

Revisit the full review here, and watch the video for ‘Roman Holiday’ below.

Home Away From Home: Fontaines DC

Written as they relocated to London, Fontaines DC’s third album ‘Skinty Fia’ is an interrogation of cultural identity and “mutated Irishness” set over their most experimental music yet.
