Fontaines D.C. Debut video for "The Couple Across The Way"

Fontaines D.C. have released a video for their latest single “The Couple Across The Way.” Taken from their new album Skinty Fia. The video was directed by Polocho and was conceptualized by frontman Grian Chatten who is seen playing accordion and singing on an isolated windowsill, which flits between an arguing elderly couple and a loving younger couple.

Speaking on the track and video, Chatten says, “I was living in a tiny little flat in North London with my girlfriend and there was this Hitchcock – esque view of an elderly couple across from us. They had these blazing arguments that sent pigeons flying around, and after each one the man in the couple would come out onto this little balcony he had and just breathe for about 10 minutes. I couldn’t help but imagine it as a reflection of myself and my girlfriend in years to come, and ourselves as a reflection of a younger, happier version of them.”
