Take a look at the video for 'The Score' below.
Just over a year after the release of Fontaines D.C.'s latest album, Skinty Fia, the band's lauded vocalist Grian Chatten has shared his debut solo single, 'The Score' – out today, via Partisan Records.
“'The Score’ is a heavyweight bated breath of lust," Grian says of the track. "I wrote it in Madrid between an electric fan and a dying plant and I intend to keep it there. It was inspired by sugar and sunset.”
The single showcases a new side of Grian's artistry – as he delves into new sonic territories, and explores a remarkably introspective space in his lyricism.
Grian has also launched his own solo website and social media platforms – suggesting there may be more of his own music in the pipeline...
'The Score' arrives after a phenomenally busy 12 months for Fontaines D.C., who debuted at No.1 in both the UK and Ireland with Skinty Fia. The album – which was previously named Hot Press' Album of the Year, and scored a nomination at the Choice Music Prize – earned a nomination last week for Best Album at the upcoming Ivor Novello Awards.
