Fontaines D.C., Wunderhorse

“Kicking off their first official showcase,” reported the Chronicle at SXSW 2019, “the five Irish lads took the stage to a capacity crowd at Latitude 30 … [behind their] brand of drum-heavy post-punk with locomotive energy.” Three years and as many LPs later, including spring’s Skinty Fia, Dubliners Fontaines D.C. return as chart-toppers in the UK. Moody, simmering, nostalgic, “Jackie Down the Line” bottles the new album’s literate skitter. “I view my writing as a child I want to let grow up in the wilderness,” front poet Grian Chatten told the Chronicle. Opener Wunderhorse doubles as Jacob Slater, unpredictable act-out in breakout London trio Dead Pretties. – Raoul Hernandez
