Fontaines D.C. have kept the videos flowing with a Jordan Martin-directed clip for A Lucid Dream.

This follows previous visuals for A Hero’s Death singles I Don’t Belong, Televised Mind and the title-track, as well as the just released ‘isolation’ live versions of Sunny and again I Don’t Belong. This all gives plenty to feed off from the band’s second studio album; a comedown, hangover and solemn reflection on the huge success of last year’s debut Dogrel.

Grian Chatten has accepted they could lose some fans thanks to this honest, somewhat arms-length new approach, but there’s not much evidence of that if next year’s planned UK tour is anything to go by, where the ‘sold-out’ signs are already up in many locations.
