Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have shared a video of them performing early single ‘Angeline’ from isolation.
As the description points out, each member of the Melbourne quintet recorded their parts separately on their laptops and phones. From there, it all got mixed down by guitarist/vocalist Joe White, with a video put together by bassist Joe Russo.
Watch the clip below:
‘Angeline’ is a song from way back in the band’s history. It was released as a single back in 2013, the same year the group formed, but has occasionally popped up in the band’s live sets over the years.
Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are currently gearing up to release their second album ‘Sideways to New Italy’. They’ve released a string of singles so far, the most recent being ‘Falling Thunder’ earlier this month.
‘Sideways to New Italy’ follows their 2018 full-length debut ‘Hope Downs’, and is slated for release June 5 via Sub Pop/Ivy League.
Taking its name from the small regional town where drummer Marcel Tussie is from, the album sees the band examine notions of place and their own personal geographies after a long period on the road touring behind ‘Hope Downs’.
Per a press statement, the band found inspiration in the idea of “people trying to find home somewhere alien”.
“I felt completely rudderless on tour,” the band’s Fran Keaney explained upon the album’s announcement. “It’s fun but you get to a point where you’re like, ‘Who am I anymore?’ You feel like you’re everywhere and nowhere at the same time. And no one in particular.”
