Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever is yet another noteworthy act to emerge from Melbourne, Australia’s diverse music scene. The band gained initial fame with its self-assured 2015 EP Talk Tight, and has further impressed with this year’s follow-up EP The French Press — which includes our Song of the Day, “French Press.”

For the uninitiated, it’s is a perfect introduction to Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever’s sound — featuring propulsive rhythms and jangly guitar riffs, with engaging lyrics from a trio of songwriters (Fran Keaney, Tom Russo and Joe White). According to a Sub Pop press release, “French Press” is about a Skype call between two brothers:

“…one gallivanting overseas, the other sitting in tedious comfort in some air-conditioned office. The freedom of one, having cast off physical and emotional ties and wrestling with liberation versus feeling lost, versus the grim routine – but also security – of the latter, all pivoting on a series of double meanings.”
