Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever unveil new single "Cameo"

03 June 2020, 14:16 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have returned with "Cameo", a fourth taster of their new album Sideways To New Italy.

"Cameo" lands after previous outings "Falling Thunder", "She's There" and "Cars In Space".

Vocalist/guitarist Fran Keaney says of their new single, "This is a love song. It’s about reaching through time portals. The lyrics were pieced together over about a year like a little puzzle. I found the first pieces in Rushworth, and the last pieces in Darwin."

Sideways To New Italy will follow on from their 2018 debut Hope Downs, and is named after a village near New South Wales' Northern Rivers – the area drummer Marcel Tussie is from.

Keaney says of their forthcoming record, "I wanted to write songs that I could use as some sort of bedrock of hopefulness to stand on, something to be proud of. A lot of the songs on the new record are reaching forward and trying to imagine an idyll of home and love."

"Cameo" is out now. Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever's Sideways To New Italy album drops via Sub Pop on Friday (5 June), and is available to pre-order now.
