Australian outfit Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have shared delicious new track 'The Hammer'.
The band's debut album 'Hope Downs' emerges on June 15th, and it matches a lingering sense of despair at the state of the world with some fantastic indie rock songwriting.
Matching spiky jangle pop influences to an almost wistful lyrical sensibility, the five-piece continually deliver the unexpected.
Here's Tom Russo...
“We were feeling like we were in a moment where the sands were shifting and the world was getting a lot weirder. There was a general sense that things were coming apart at the seams and people around us were to. The songs on this album are like a collection of postcards about wider things that were going on through the lens of these small characters.”
'The Hammer' is online now, with those sharply intricate guitar lines combining into a wire mesh, supporting some gilded harmonies.
Tune in now.
