Fontaines D.C. 'Skinty Fia' by Hugh Mulhern

Rob Ulitski - 30th Mar 2022

Hugh Mulhern directs a surreal performance promo for Fontaines D.C.

In the video for Skinty Fia - which takes its namesake from the group's upcoming third LP - we see vocalist Grian Chatten in the middle of a hedonistic celebration, trapped among a cast of eccentric characters, bizarre rituals and an overflowing sense of excess. 

The video opens with an oscillating multicoloured light darting through empty fields and into an enigmatic building, before the concept distorts into a haunting series of warped vignettes. The dreamlike aesthetic is grounded by Chatten's calm and collected attitude, which contrasts the disorder and chaos around him. 

In the same vein as the other video releases from this album, the concept transcends the performance and morphs into something otherworldly and uncanny, and perfectly fits the unusual atmosphere in the song.
