The first song in the album "Big" not only sang for Irish young people but also sang for people who is chasing their dream but lost their way in this world. Furthermore, "Roy’s Tune" shows the desperate story with a simple string and sad emotions, you can’t really tell if this song is for you. But you certainly can make sure this song is for someone else who needs a hand.
Why people say Fontaines D.C.'s debut album gets everyone's attention and is the most needed album for this generation?
Because they are not only sing the reality for their own society, but also vent their observations about the current state of society through the punk style! They don't lose their identity like other anglophone singers; they’ve said. "Singing in another person's accent just seems to me to be robbing yourself of a pure connection with your music. It's putting a barrier between yourself and your words."
If you have quietly listened to this album, then the last song "Dublin City Sky” has able to watering your eyes and devote all your respects to this band. Fontaines DC takes thirty-nine minutes to tell you the story and use the last 4minutes 53second show you who they are and why they are different.
“DOGREL" is not only the most popular album in the punk music industry in 2019, but also worth listening to after thinking about where you came from and where you need to go. This album is the perfect album and the most remarkable one in 2019.
My lyrics are all based on personal experience but sometimes it's easier to say that your City is failing rather than your spirit. I write a lot about little stories in Dublin because to me they have all the romance of the universe. I don't really know why I write at all but I can't stop.
