Fontaines DC share new single 'Televised Mind'

With their highly-anticipated new album now less than a month away, Fontaines DC have now unveiled the next cut to be taken from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Televised Mind' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Hugh Mulhern, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'I Don't Belong' and the record's title-track in previewing their sophomore LP 'A Hero's Death', which is set to land on the 31st July via Partisan Records.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Grian Chatten said, "This song is about the echo chamber, and how personality gets stripped away by surrounding approval. People’s opinions get reinforced by constant agreement, and we're robbed of our ability to feel wrong. We’re never really given the education of our own fallibility. People feign these great beliefs in order to appear trendy, as opposed to independently arriving at their own thoughts.

"We were listening to a lot of The Prodigy and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, specifically their song 'Open Heart Surgery'. I was interested in extrapolating those types of chord progressions and capturing this droning, hypnotic feel. That last line repeated over and over ["What ya call it"] is a buffer expression that people used here in Dublin. It’s sort of like "umm" or "well..." – it’s what people say when they’re distracted."
