Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever share new track ‘Mainland’

It was recorded in a secluded house in the wilderness of Australia’s Northern New South Wales.

Melbourne five-piece Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are back with a new track.

‘Mainland’ was recorded in a secluded house in the wilderness of Australia’s Northern New South Wales, and was inspired by a trip in 2017 by Tom Russo to his grandparent’s birthplace of the Aeolian Islands off Sicily. It’s a jangly and breezy cut from the outfit, but it also harbours a much darker heart than may first appear. 

Speaking of the track, vocalist, songwriter and guitarist Russo said: “I was reading about a refugee crisis unfolding not far away in the Mediterranean Sea. The song is about longing, disillusionment, privilege and holding on to love as a kind of shield”.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are also headed on a short UK tour in May, heading to Nottingham, Glasgow, Manchester and London along the way. Tickets for the dates go on sale from 9am on Friday 26th January.
