Fontaines DC have shared a new video for ‘The Couple Across The Way’ – check it out below.

The track appears on the Dubliners’ recent album ‘Skinty Fia’ and follows their recent video for ‘Roman Holiday’.

In it, frontman Grian Chatten plays the accordion at his window, and explains: I was living in a tiny little flat in North London with my girlfriend and there was this Hitchcock - esque view of an elderly couple across from us. They had these blazing arguments that sent pigeons flying around, and after each one the man in the couple would come out onto this little balcony he had and just breathe for about 10 minutes.

“I couldn’t help but imagine it as a reflection of myself and my girlfriend in years to come, and ourselves as a reflection of a younger, happier version of them.”

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.
