Listen to a track from the 2FM Rising pick for 2018.

Who are they? Led by dynamic frontman Grian Chatten, this punky rock n'roll outfit have been championed by BBC's Steve Lamacq, opened for The Horrors and been snapped up by seminal UK label Rough Trade - with two acclaimed singles under the belts, we're excited to hear more.

2FM DJ Dan Hegarty says: "Like some of the great Irish rock acts that have gone before them (Sultans Of Ping FC & Humanzi), Fontaines D.C. have that ingredient that makes them essential listening. Their tunes just keep getting better, and live they're an act that you really have to check out."

Where can I see them? They're playing a pre-Xmas show at The Workman's Club on December 23rd - more details here.
