Equal parts thrilling and wistfully melancholic rock, Melbourne five-piece Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever elicit warm memories of the golden age of Aussie guitar bands, while at the same time breathing genuine excitement back into the contemporary indie music scene.
Their debut album, Hope Downs, saw them take on the world in a mammoth international tour playing some of the world’s biggest music festivals, from Coachella, The Great Escape, Primavera and Shaky Knees to Lowlands, Pukklepop, Green Man and Splendour in the Grass.
Described by one critic as ‘an album for lazy days and endless summer nights’, the music of Rolling Blackouts CF is perfect for Darwin Festival’s Hot August Nights with their infectious tunes and poetic lyrics fuelled by a jittery energy of skewed guitars and driving beats.
‘Instantly memorable tunes with echoes of classic bands like R.E.M. and the Cure.’
