ROLLING BLACKOUTS COASTAL FEVER
‘TALKING STRAIGHT’
(taken from Hope Downs album out Friday 15 June through IVY LEAGUE RECORDS)

Melbourne’s Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever return with the blistering new single, ‘Talking Straight’. To coincide with the news, Ivy League Records is thrilled to announce that the band’s highly-anticipated debut album Hope Downs will be released on Friday June 15 via digital, CD & LP formats.

Fittingly recorded in a house in the middle of the Northern NSW bush, ‘Talking Straight’ hits hard with its driving rhythm and melodic, interweaving guitars, while reflecting on the loneliness of being a small person in the big universe.

In singer/songwriter/guitarist Joe White’s own words:

“The concept came about when I heard someone talking about the possibility of us, humans, being alone in the universe, and how sad that would be. The idea in this song is that we might be lonely, but we could be lonely together.”

‘Talking Straight’ marks the second release of new music from the band for 2018. Previous single ‘Mainland’ saw the band receive accolades from the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum and DIY Mag as well as high rotation from triple j and community radio alike. Having recently wrapped 2018’s Laneway Festival, where the band were a highlight act, RBCF will gear up for a huge few months as they head over to North America and Europe to play a run of headline shows and festivals including Coachella, Shaky Knees, The Great Escape and Primavera Sound.
