Following the success of their Talk Tight EP, jangly five-piece Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are showing no signs of slowing as 2016 surges on.
Honed in the thrumming confines of Melbourne venues like the Old Bar, Rolling Blackouts’ songs pulse with energetic fervor. Nobody’s mistaking this for slacker rock; these tracks charge and skip and tumble with neverending momentum. They’re vignettes, quick peeks into the interior worlds of people with ordinary lives made extraordinary.
Rewarded with triple j rotation, love from community radio across the country, support slots for The Preatures and Bully on their Australian tour, praise from Stereogum and SPIN, and local acclaim for their infectious live shows, this Melbourne five-piece are set to run wild over the new year.
“Rolling Blackouts C.F. make the kind of crisp, unfussy rock music that’s been all too absent in recent years.” – Stereogum
“Wildly unpredictable… yet completely pop-focused.” – Rolling Stone Australia
“Flying Nun guitar-pop via the off-kilter histrionics of Jonathan Richman and the lyrical nous of Paul Kelly.” – TheMusic
