+ Double A-side 7" single of new licks from the insanely-good janglers RBCF. Their debut album was one of the Drift Top 100 Records of the Year. Form an orderly queue, please.

After a landmark 12 months for Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, who released their debut album Hope Downs to worldwide critical acclaim in June 2018, here's some new music from the Melbourne band out via Sub Pop Records in the form of single, ‘In the Capital’.

The track (which is now live on all digital platforms) will also feature on a limited edition 7-inch alongside a second A-side single, titled ‘Read My Mind’.

Fran Keaney describes how ‘In the Capital’ came together: "I first had the idea for the melody and some of the lyrics when I was swimming. It’s taken a while to finish the song, to make it feel like the initial feeling. I can’t neatly describe it, but something like connection despite distance. I was thinking about transience and water and death and big cities and fishing towns and moon river."

To say 2018 was a big year for Rolling Blackouts C.F. is an understatement. The release of the band’s lauded debut album 'Hope Downs' – which featured singles ‘Mainland’, ‘Talking Straight’, ‘An Air Conditioned Man’, ‘Time In Common’ & ‘Sister’s Jeans’ – was embraced by lovers of their early EPs, 'Talk Tight' and 'The French Press', and new fans alike.

The record quickly became one of the most acclaimed albums of the year, appearing in many sought after Best of 2018 lists, coming in at #5 on Rough Trade’s Albums of the Year list, #3 on MOJO’s Album of the Year List (it was also named MOJO’s Debut Album of the Year), #2 on UNCUT’s Albums of the Year & many more. 

The band kicked off 2019 by being shortlisted for the prestigious AMP Award.
