Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever announce new album with first single "The Way It Shatters"

03 February 2022, 16:18 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have returned with news of their forthcoming album Endless Rooms, and have shared the first single "The Way It Shatters".

"The Way It Shatters" is the band's first new material since their 2020 album Sideways To New Italy, and is accompanied by a Nick Mckk-directed video.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever say of the single, "It’s about how ending up in your particular situation in life is the result of absolute randomness. If you happen to be born into wealthy Australia or happen to be born into a war zone in Syria. That’s just the way it shatters. So it’s when this good luck is mistaken for a sense of pride in one’s self or their country they become confused and deluded about what’s important. It’s when those on the other side of the luck scale are completely othered and considered not worthy."

Endless Rooms is the first Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever album to be self-produced.

The band adds of the album, "It's almost an anti-concept album. The Endless Rooms of the title reflects our love of creating worlds in our songs. We treat each of them as a bare room to be built up with infinite possibilities."
