Fontaines D.C. unveil new single ‘I Love You’
Having recently announced the upcoming release of new album, ‘Skinty Fia’, on April 22nd, Fontaines D.C. this week unveiled new single, ‘I Love You’.
Described as ostensibly a love song, ‘I Love You’ is written from the perspective of an Irishman abroad, unravelling to reveal a passionate sense of self-loathing. Frontman Grian Chatten describes the song as “the first overtly political song we’ve written.”.
You can check out the video above as Chatten elaborates, “It’s standing in the centre of our beloved home country as a multitude of things are brought to tragic ends in an apocalyptic state of affairs. That’s how it feels to me, and what I felt when I wrote it.”

Chubby and the Gang reveal new EP ‘Labour of Love’

The EP features new single ‘Who Loves Ya (Coup d’état)’ which you can watch the video for above. Frontman Charlie Manning says of the song: “We had the idea to do a Valentine’s Day single and I sort of wanted to show all the angles of love. Warts and all. Quite often it’s not such a smooth experience. Can often feel scary and insane. So I wanted to write a bubblegum song about it but also show the duality of the emotion.”.

We are passionate about new music at Full Pelt Music. Check out the new additions to our ‘Discover’ New Music Playlist this week:
‘Pity’ – Out of Love
London punks Out of Love preview their upcoming debut LP, ‘So Far, So Good’ with new single ‘Pity’. Frontman Jack Rogers says “Pity is an observation about a person I know who does nothing but moan about life. It’s a response to the toxic outlook they have on the world and how I want nothing to do with them anymore. Even though cutting that person out from my life will be hard and conflicting, it’s necessary to surround myself with like-minded, forward-thinking people.
“It’s hard to watch someone you care about be so set in their ways and do very little to try and change even after helping them time and time again. Pity is a reminder for me to never turn into that person.”
‘Delirious’ – South Haven
Copenhagen natives South Haven debut new single, ‘Delirious’. Vocalist Christine Nielsen comments,“This song has a special place in my heart because I think the lyrics are open for interpretation. Personally, I interpret the song to be about dealing with a lot of difficult emotions all at once and not being able to get rid of them, which results in a feeling of deliriousness. The music video seeks to show this state of mind with the use of different locations and short and quick shots. Although it seeks to emphasize this, it also portrays a sort of beauty in the chaos with the use of neutral and calm colors and lighting”.
‘Turn It Up!’ – Romero
Melbourne’s power-pop group Romero preview their debut album with the title track, ‘Turn It Up!’. Singer Alanna Oliver reflects on the single, “I was watching a Debbie Harry [Blondie] documentary and one of the quotes was ‘she just gets on stage and she turns it on’. As soon as I heard this I paused it and started writing. The lyrics flowed effortlessly. It was such a simple idea to channel that inner power. When I sing this song I am now a woman who knows what she wants and how to get it.”
