Irish post-punk five-piece Fontaines D.C. are releasing a new album, Skinty Fia, on April 22 via Partisan. Now they have shared the album’s third single, title track “Skinty Fia,” via a video for the song. Hugh Mulhern directed the video. Watch it below

A press release describes the themes of the song: “‘Skinty Fia’ is an Irish phrase which translates to English as ‘the damnation of the deer’ and the album’s cover art features a deer, plucked from its natural habitat and deposited in the hallway of a home, illuminated by an artificial red glow. The phrase, which is used to display disappointment or annoyance, resonated with frontman Grian Chatten as the correct expression of his feelings towards the ‘mutation’ of Irish culture abroad. The song explores the idea through the lens of a relationship doomed by paranoia, alcohol and drugs.”

Previously Fontaines D.C. shared a video for the album’s lead single, “Jackie Down the River,” in addition to announcing a 2022 world tour. Then they shared the album’s second single, “I Love You,” via a video for the song. “I Love You” was one of our Songs of the Week.

Skinty Fia was produced by Dan Carey, who produced the band’s previous album, 2020’s A Hero’s Death.

The band’s full lineup is Carlos O’Connell (guitar), Conor Curley (guitar), Conor Deegan III (bass guitar), Grian Chatten (vocals), and Tom Coll (drums).

LYRICS:
Do do do
La la la

My friend Sally says she knows ya
got a funny point of you
Says you got away with murder
Maybe one time maybe two

Something happens in the morning
When I can’t see those failing eyes
I can’t find a good word for ya
Does it come as a surprise? I

Don’t think
We’d rhyme
I will wear you down in time
I will hurt you
I’ll desert you
I am Jackie down the line

Said did Sally ‘bout a future
Before you bored of her as well
If all you want is entertainment
If you can’t have it you make hell

Don’t make no odds for ye
To be told yeah
Don’t make no odds for ye
To be told
yeah

I don’t think
We’d rhyme
I will wear you down in time
I will hurt you, I’ll desert you
I am Jackie down the line
I don’t think
We’d rhyme
I will make your secrets mine
I will hate ye
I’ll debase ye
I am Jackie down the line

Do do do
La la la

So come on down to Sally’s boneyard
See her spirit in decline
See the handsome mourners crying
They hawked a beating heart for a sturdy spine, yeah

What good is happiness to me
if I’ve to wield it carefully?
For care I’ll always come up short
It’s only right

I don’t think we’d rhyme
I will wear you down in time
I will hurt ye
I’ll desert ye
I’m one Jackeen of a line
I don’t think we’d rhyme
I will take up all your time
I will chew ye
I’ll go through ye
I am Jackie down the line
I don’t think we’d rhyme
I will make your secrets mine
I will hate ye
I’ll debase ye
I am Jackie down the line
And I will stone ye
I’ll alone ye
I am Jackie down the line
If I can make you
I can break you
I am Jackie down the line
I am Jackie down the line
(ooh shalala)
Do do do
La la la
