Skinty Fia, the title of the much-anticipated third album by Fontaines D.C, translates to English as “the damnation of the deer,” but it’s also used as an expletive.
The band’s thoughts on Irish identity are crucial to Skinty Fia as they have relocated from their home country. 2019’s Dogrel was mostly set in Dublin and was littered with snapshots of the city’s characters, like the cabbie in “Boys In The Better Land” who “spits out ‘Brits out!’, only smokes Carroll’s”. By contrast, their markedly different 2020 follow-up A Hero’s Death was largely written on tour and documented the dislocation and disconnection the band felt from Ireland as they had new adventures around the globe. This time, they’re addressing their Irishness from afar as they recreate new lives for themselves elsewhere and try to resolve the need to broaden their horizons with the affection they still clearly feel for the land and people they’ve left behind.
