With ‘Hope Downs’, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have an album that radiates the warmth of the Australian sunshine and the grubbiness of the bush. Hope Downs’ is far from perfect, but it has charm in abundance. Hope Downs is the kind of album I'm always hoping for when listening to an indie rock album, endlessly re-playable with catchy songs that are simple yet far deeper than they initially appear. Man is this one hell of a debut, this easy going record encapsulates this summer coastal holiday vibe such a feel to it. The bass and drums are relentless and keep up with quick punky tempo of the album. The vocals are smooth and easy, they're not anything unique but do get the job done of conveying the.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are either the world’s most meandering pop band or its most efficient jam band. Either way, for their purposes, jamming is as much a lyrical strategy as musical one. Over the course of two excellent EPs, the Melbourne quintet has mastered an adrenalized, infectious brand of motorik jangle rock that’s both warmly nostalgic and thrillingly unpredictable. The band sustains that brisk momentum throughout its full-length debut, Hope Downs-although, at 10 songs and 35 minutes, the album is only slightly longer than the EPs that preceded it. Rolling Blackouts are still harnessing their strengths as erudite tunesmiths and freewheeling rock’n’rollers, and the past few years of steady touring have transformed them into a crack live act.
Hope Downs is the debut studio album by the Australian indie rock band Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. It was released on 15 June 2018, through Sub Pop. The album title refers to the Hope Downs mine, which, according to the band, "refers to the feeling of standing at the edge of the void of the big unknown, and finding something to hold on to".

Rolling Blackouts . 이블: Sub Pop – SP 1220. Following two excellent EPs from 2017, the debut album from this Australian band continues to move them to the front of the pack. The songs are fresh and lively, combining buoyant rhythms and jangle-pop melodies with atonal guitar chords, rollicking lead licks and a dark, quirky energy flow.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever wastes no time in getting to their strength-jangling, propulsive pop-rock-on their debut full-length Hope Downs. There is no table-setting track here. No slow fade in or superfluous into. Hope Downs fulfills that promise, first by tumbling out of the chute on An Air Conditioned Man and then by barrelling through nine more taut pop-rock gems in just over half an hour. The basic components here are pretty simple: driving (often motorik) rhythms courtesy drummer Marcel Tussie, indispensable bouncy-ball bass lines by Joe Russo and a dense tangle of guitars - strummed acoustics and spiky electrics - constructed by Joe’s brother Tom Russo, Joe White and Fran Keaney.
