It’s been an incredible year for Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, who released their debut album Hope Downs to worldwide critical acclaim in amongst multiple international tours. Ivy League Records, I OH YOU and Converge Management are so excited to welcome the Melbourne band back home for their biggest local headline tour yet, kicking off this week! So far, the band have sold out two Corner Hotels in Melbourne, The Factory Theatre in Sydney and Adelaide’s Jive Bar, and they’re very close to selling out shows in Brisbane and Perth.

Fran Keaney describes how the track came together:

”The first lines ‘stand on the morning / head like a weathervane’ came immediately – that was the clue. Then was the slow process of finding the other pieces to fit. The song is a platonic love song. It offers no answers. Just says, ‘Hi, I see you’.”

The band’s sophisticated debut album has been embraced by lovers of their early EPs, Talk Tight and The French Press, and new fans alike. Since its release in June, it has been championed by triple j, Double J, FBi Radio, Pitchfork, The Guardian, Paste Magazine, NME, Rolling Stone US, BBC 6 Music, Stereogum, DIY Mag, and countless others.

Hope Downs was largely written in 2017 in the band’s Melbourne rehearsal room. Named after a vast open cut mine in outback Australia, it possesses a robust full-band sound laced with driving rhythms, wry lyricism, and quintessentially Australian guitars. Core songwriters Fran Keaney, Joe White, and Tom Russo bunkered down and wrote as the chaos of the world outside unavoidably seeped into the songwriting process.
