Melbourne, Australia five-piece Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have announced their debut album, Hope Downs, and shared a video for a new song, "Talking Straight." Hope Downs is due out June 15 via Sub Pop. Below is the "Talking Straight" video (directed by Matt Sav), followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as their upcoming tour dates. The album includes the previously shared single "Mainland," which is also below.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Joe White had this to say about "Talking Straight" in a press release: "The concept came about when I heard someone talking about the possibility of us, humans, being alone in the universe, and how sad that would be. The idea in this song is that we might be lonely, but we could be lonely together."

3. Mainland
4. Time In Common
5. Sister's Jeans

This is great news to hear from the industry. Their singles have been so far a viral one and people were actually talking about it. so, I think fans will be so excited to hear that they are coming with an album at last.
