Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever—an obnoxiously long name inspired by their guitarist’s séjour in a Cambodian hostel with a dreadful virus—are the newest rock export from Australia. The Melbourne band’s first two EPs established a jittery energy, blending post-punk with surf-inflected guitars for a sound that’s both nostalgic and unpredictable. Fran Keaney, Tom Russo, and Joe White share vocal duties, with Joe Russo on bass and Marcel Tussie on drums. And while the quintet claims most of their lyrics are based on fictional characters and events, they often paint hyper-realistic portraits of life on their recent debut LP, Hope Downs. Rolling Blackouts definitely aren’t a jam band, but their long-winded explorations allow them to dissect anything from café culture (“Cappuccino City”) to white privilege (“Mainland”).
