Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Australia does not stop making us happy with outstanding bands. From Tomavistas we are delighted to have one of Australian most current bastions. A project with more future that all of those who now meet the expectations of the music made in that country.
Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever (Melbourne) are Fran Keany, Tom and Joe Russo, Joe White, Marcel Tussie and we are in love with them since they took out their first album titled “Talk Tight” in 2016. What about the wonderful “The French Press” of 2017 with that homonymous hit that blows your head? And the confirmation that was “Hope Downs”? An album chosen by specialized media as one of the best of 2018. It is quite difficult to classify their sound except for some nuances that can draw lines to connect their effect and their music with passages from their fellow countrymen The Go-Betweens or rhythmic connections with The Feelies. That is a kind of indie rock, country punk or as they describe themselves Tough Pop or Soft Punk that drinks from classics but with a very strong connection with the current times in which everything previous is taken to a point of updating that is quite shocking. Something similar to what may be happening with Fontaines D.C.
Just a few days ago they released their second album, “Sideways to New Italy” and we can say that they have done it again. They have reached all the expectations overcoming some of the features of their previous album and recording some of their best songs of their career such as “Cars In Space”. Their gig at Tomavistas will be unforgettable and we have no doubt that theirs will be one of the best concerts of the festival.
