Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have quickly risen to the top of the Australian music scene. Known for soaring guitars, propelling drums and pop hooks. Members Fran Keaney, Joe White, Marcel Tussie, and brothers Tom and Joe Russo tap into Australia’s rich guitar band history while perfecting a sound that feels entirely their own at the same time. The band’s three alternating singer-guitarists load their songs with fragmented narratives, overlapping dialogue, and impressionistic detail. Although the literal meaning of their lyrics isn’t always easy to discern, the internal dramas that play out in each track are deeply felt, and the jokes always land.
Establishing themselves with the infectious motoric jangle of their debut album Hope Downs, the band have broken new stylistic ground with their third album, Endless Rooms, written and self-produced in bulk through Melbourne’s lockdown restrictions. Unfettered by expectations, with too much time on their hands, ideas were traded and experimented with. When they finally were able to play together in the brief period restrictions lifted, thankfully, it worked. Endless Rooms reveals for the indie-rock five-piece a wider screen, deeper narrative currents, and their most compelling artistic statement yet.
