Melbourne, Australia five-piece Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have shared a new song, “Cars In Space,” via a video for the track that finds the band performing at a drive-in movie theater in Australia. Fellow Aussie musician Julia Jacklin co-directed the video with her regular collaborator Nick Mckk. Never mind that you can’t successfully project films during the day outdoors. Watch the video below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

In a press release the band’s Fran Keaney says “Cars In Space” is “the swirling words and thoughts before a breakup.”

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever released their debut album, Hope Downs, back in June 2018 via Sub Pop. Hope Downs was our Album of the Week, one of our Top 100 Albums of 2018, and our #1 Debut Album of 2018. You can also read our review of it.

In February 2019 they shared a new song, “In the Capital” (it was one of our Songs of the Week) and released it as a 7-inch ia Sub Pop. The B-side, “Read My Mind,” was also shared in April 2019 via a video for the track (it was also one of our Songs of the Week). There’s no word on a new album from the band.
