‘Dogrel,’ the taut, thrilling and razor sharp debut from Dublin based 5 piece Fontaines D.C. has an urgency and edge which belies the craft that’s gone into every song. Grian Chatten seems to have an innate gift for knowing exactly when to unfurl a cascade of prose and when to just shout “Is it too real for ya” in his thick Irish accent, while the band mix up a heady stew of punk and post-punk melodies. An instant classic.
