"When we wrote that song we hadn’t really played it live that much, so it just happened that it was that speed. But then from playing it live, it kind of naturally felt like some of it should be faster because it has such an energy. The moment that song starts everyone just starts jumping, the beat kicks in and it’s insane." Carlos

Well, it wouldn't have been right to crown Dogrel our Album of the Year and not have Fontaines grace the podcast. Carlos and Deego* join Emily for the second time this year to chat about the overwhelming reception their debut has received, the making of Darklands Sessions, a lost shoe and how through it all, they just want to keep it real.

Plus! We announce our Compilations and Reissues of the Year. Rob joins Emily to whizz through some of the top hitters that made our lists for 2019.
