We are really loving this at Music Republic Magazine…Rising Scottish outfit The LaFontaines and their cracking new single “All In”.
A band well on their way to bigger things, we predict. Great track and props to the film makers of this video (watch it at bottom of this page).
Lifted from imminent new album “Junior”, slated for 14th June release on So Recordings.
The band are on the road opening for Deaf Havana this month (March) before a headline tour in June.
Fresh from supporting Mike Shinoda at The Roundhouse in London this past weekend, the band ‘s impressive new single focuses on “the eternal conflict of the unsettled mind”. Asserting that everything’s a contradiction.
The track takes on a darker tone to their previous output, and it reflects the contemporary anxieties of connecting in an age of “digital facades and false truths.”
The LaFontaines deliver a powerful sound that “fuses the guitar swagger of Kasabian, the edgy hip-hop delivery of The Streets and the electronic-pop undertones of Twenty One Pilots”, some say…
“Junior” will be the band’s third album and follows 2017’s Common Problem and their 2015 debut Class, which made it to #1 in the Indie Breakers Chart and Top 10 in the Scottish chart.
The band previously toured with Anderson Paak, Twin Atlantic and All Time Low, and last year were main support to Don Broco across the UK and Europe.
Also with a number of major festivals under their belt, including Reading & Leeds, Download, The Great Escape, 2000 Trees, T in the Park, Belladrum, NH7, Secret Garden Party, TRNSMT & Reeperbahn,.
