After releasing their highly acclaimed debut EP Talk Tight that garnered widespread praise from the likes of Pitchfork and Stereogum back in 2015 , Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever return with their follow-up EP, titled ‘The French Press’.

'The French Press' levels up on everything that made 'Talk Tight' such an immediate draw. Multi-tracked melodies which curl around one another, charging drums and addictive bass lines converge to give each track its driving momentum. Honed through their live shows, this relentless energy carries the record through new chapters in the band’s Australian storybook.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever’s songs have always had all the page-turning qualities of a good yarn and 'The French Press' is no different. Somewhere between impressionists and fabulists, lyricists Fran Keaney, Tom Russo and Joe White often start with something rooted in real life – the melancholy of travel on "French Press," having a hopeless crush on "Julie’s Place" – before building them into incisive vingettes. The result is lines blurred between fiction and reality – vibrant stories which get closer at a particular truth than either could alone.

Blending critical insight and literate love songs, 'The French Press' cements Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever as one of Australia’s smartest working bands.

‘The French Press’ EP is released via Ivy League (AU/NZ) & Sub Pop (Rest of World) on March 10th.
