LISTEN: Give in to the Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever in the Jangly “Wither With You”

Say "Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever" five times fast.

Australia has a tradition of tongue-twister band names (Eddy Current Suppression Ring, anyone?), which is why it was no surprise to hear that newcomers Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever call Melbourne home. And though we all know which way the toilet flushes down there, stupidly amazing band names are kind of a thing right now, so we’ll forgive the initial confusion in trying to get this one right.

Any extra effort is worth it, however, since the first two songs from the five-piece’s debut release Talk Tight are like a breath of fresh ocean air (fittingly, the track “Clean Slate” is labeled with the “saltwater pop” tag on Soundcloud). Before Talk Tight’s release in March, Rolling Blackouts C.F. have shared the opener, “Wither With You,” a calming, Petty-esque tune that jangles along with their Kiwi neighbors Dick Diver and Salad Boys.
