The Fontaines’ channel Dublin into their rock’n’roll single Liberty Belle


The Fontaines are a Dublin band who are unmistakably Dublin. Captured outside the Parliament Street pizza joint that almost bares their name, the video for ‘Liberty Belle’ also features the band in various streets, the pub thatbares the song’s name and the Workman’s venue, where they launch this single this weekend.

‘Liberty Belle’ is a retro rock’n’roll jam fitted with a Dublin accent. It’s short, sharp and stands out.
