Fontaines D.C., Boy Azooga and Whyte Horses are some of the first names to be confirmed for next March’s South By Southwest Festival.

Fontaines will be heading to Austin after continuing some serious momentum this year thanks to the irresistible double A-side single Chequeless Reckless/Boys In The Better Land and some notable touring in support of the likes of Shame.

Boy Azooga in turn have their debut album settled in release and unveiled a cover of The Table’s Do The Standing Still earlier this week.

”In 1977 Tony Barnes, Russell Young, Len Lewis and Mickey O Connor, collectively known as The Table, released their comic book dead body dance floor classic ‘Do The Standing Still’,” Davey Newington said of it.

“The songs lyrics reference multiple Marvel Comic Fantastic Four titles amongst the other chaos. It’s an amazing song so we decided to cover it, with super hero Eddie Al-Shakarchi behind the desk. Apparently people used to rush the dance floor and stand still for the duration of the song when it came on in clubs or when the band played it live.”

Her’s, The Ninth Wave, Oh Sees and Husky Loops are some more artists on the initial round of invitations.
