Man, is this record out yet? If you hadn’t notice, we’ve been clamoring for Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever with every single they unleash from their forthcoming mini-album. I feel like this tune offers a glimpse at more dynamism in their songwriting, shining things off for a bit of Springsteen or Vile feel to it. I will say there’s definitely polish on this one, presented differently than their other tunes, so I hope it makes for an encouraging final listen when Talk Tight finally hits…you know, a little of this, a little of that; it’ll be available on March 25th.
I don’t even care that this tune has been posted already all over the internets because it’s just that good. If you haven’t already got around to listening to Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, it’s time that you do that. These five gentlemen from Melbournehave just announced that their latest release, a mini LP calledTalk Tight,will be out March 25th viaIvy League, and shared the lyric video for the new single “Wither With You,” which is an instant classic jangly rock tune. It’s got a Go-Betweens feel to it, but with a bit more of a snarl and kick. I’ve probably played this tune five times already today, and that number will probably double by its end. Take a listen and hear what I’m talking about.
While I’m not entirely sure of the meaning behind Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, I am sure that the music the band’s crafting is something worth noticing. It’s the second time this year I’ve heard a band (the other being EZTV) harken back to an era in the late 70s/early 80s where rock n’ roll attitude was being spun in different directions, whilst always having this experimental twist. I mean, this song sounds old; it doesn’t sound like they’re channeling something from long ago, it sounds like they’re straight out of that period. Look for their Talk Tight mini-LP coming your way early next year.
