Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever on Monday 21st May 2018



(single out Tuesday January23 through Ivy League Records)

Inspired by a trip taken by singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Russo in early 2017 to his grandparents

’birthplace, the Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily, 'Mainland boasts the same urgency of tracks like 'Clean Slate' and 'Sick Bug' that helped bring the b

and to the attention of punters and won them critical acclaim. Russo says of the track's inspiration:


I was reading about a refugee crisis unfolding not far away in the Mediterranean

Sea. The song is about longing, disillusionment, privilege and holding on to love as a

kind of shield.


Recorded in a secluded house in the Northern NSW wilderness, 'Mainland' marks the first

taste of new music from the band since the release of their lauded 2017 EP The French Press


Since the band's inception, Rolling Blackouts C.F. have carved out a unique place in the local

musical landscape with their penchant for hooky guitars and undeniable melodies, married

to lyrics that are intelligent and wide-eyed, with an unmistakably-Australian dry wit.

The French Press EP landed on many 'Best Of 2017' lists, including The Guardian/The Observer

'Hidden Gems'. Meanwhile, lead single 'French Press' made countless end of year

lists including coming in at #10 on Rolling Stones Best Songs of 2017, while the band came in at

#13 in Paste Magazine's Best New Artists.

Having made waves internationally they inked a deal with iconic US label Sub Pop at the

start of last year and received high-rotation airplay on UK tastemaker BBC6

the band spent much of 2017 on the road, including multiple sold out shows

on their first ever EU tour.

The band kick off 2018 in much the same way, heading out as part of the

massive Laneway Festival this February. Having just announced spots on Coachella and Shaky Knees

festivals and with more new music on the horizon, Rolling Blackouts C.F.

show no signs of slowing down in 2018.
