AUS and EURO dates kick off September 27th in Brisbane.

It’s been an incredible year for Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, who released their debut album Hope Downs to worldwide critical acclaim in amongst multiple international tours. In fact, they’ve just wrapped a hugely successful US tour, their second proper tour, where they stepped up venue sizes and still managed to sell out or pack out most of their dates, including sellouts in San Diego, San Francisco, Vancouver, Chicago, New York City, Colorado, and Philadelphia.

To celebrate their successful US tour, Rolling Blackouts C.F. have dropped the video for album track “Sister’s Jeans”. Directed by Riley Blakeway, the clip was.made possible thanks to The Levi’s® Music Prize. Another stellar addition to the Hope Downs collection, it follows clips for ‘Time In Common’, ‘An Air Conditioned Man’ and ‘Talking Straight’.

Fran Keaney describes how the track came together:

”The first lines ‘stand on the morning / head like a weathervane’ came immediately - that was the clue. Then was the slow process of finding the other pieces to fit. The song is a platonic love song. It offers no answers. Just says, ‘Hi, I see you.’”

The band’s sophisticated debut album has been embraced by lovers of their early EPs, Talk Tight and The French Press, and new fans alike. Since its release in June, it has been championed by triple j, Double J, FBi Radio, Pitchfork, The Guardian, Paste Magazine, NME, Rolling Stone US, BBC 6 Music, Stereogum, DIY Mag, and countless others.
