Fontaines DC - Skinty Fia
Transparent Red Vinyl in a standard jacket with a full color printed inner sleeve
How does one maintain a connection to home when you’re not only separated from it physically, but also when the idea of what ‘home’ means feels like it’s slipping away? This question was brought into sharp focus for Fontaines D.C. after all five members moved away from Ireland for the first time in their lives ahead of their upcoming album, Skinty Fia. Used colloquially as an expletive, “Skinty Fia” roughly translates from the Irish language into English as “the damnation of the deer”; the spelling crassly anglicized, and its meaning diluted through generations. Part bittersweet romance, part darkly political triumph - the songs ultimately form a long-distance love letter, one that laments an increasingly privatized culture in danger of going the way of the extinct Irish giant deer.
