Fontaines D.C. – Favourite

Fontaines D.C. continues to captivate with “Favourite,” the closing track from their forthcoming album Romance, set to release via XL Recordings. Following the intense lead single “Starburster,” “Favourite” delves into the depths of love and nostalgia. Frontman Grian Chatten describes the song as having “a continuous cycle from euphoria to sadness,” capturing the essence of complex emotions.

The track’s production evokes a 90s indie rock vibe, reminiscent of early Stone Roses, blending melodic elements with the band’s signature post-punk energy. The self-directed music video complements this atmosphere, featuring childhood footage of the band members intertwined with scenes from their recent trip to Madrid, highlighting guitarist Carlos O’Connell’s roots.

The video, with its raw VHS aesthetic, taps into the sentimentality of the lyrics, offering a touching homage to their friendships and familial bonds. Bassist Conor Deegan reflects on the video’s purpose: “This video is a reminiscing of the past; of each other’s childhoods we didn’t know. It honors our friendships and the relationships we hold dear.”

“Favourite” stands as a poignant testament to Fontaines D.C.’s evolution, seamlessly blending their past and present to create a track that resonates on multiple levels. The band’s ability to evoke deep emotions through both music and visuals showcases their growth and artistic depth.
