8/10 Clinton Staff review, 08 March 2017

This is a pretty nice slab of down to earth unpretentious guitar pop from Australia. In common with Scott and Charlene’s Wedding they have a singer who initially comes across as having nothing much more on his mind than where the next snag for the bar-b- is coming from but this everyman delivery masks a literate pen. When combined with bright a tuneful indie this leads to a combination that will appeal to those fans of Parquet Courts who are tired of them re-inventing themselves. 

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are simple in everything they do but name. Their compositions take the blueprint I suppose initially from the Strokes brand of rhythmic guitar rock but are somehow more likeable. There are hints in the friendly guitars of Real Estate and RBCF invite you into their songs rather than showing you how cool they are. On ‘Sick Bug’ they remind me of the economical New Zealand pop of the Clean whilst using chords that are slightly reminiscent of ‘Don’t Fear the Reaper’. On  ‘Colours’ run there’s something of the early Go -Betweens in the bouncy off kilter delivery. RBCF marry a garage band unpretentiousness with clever and plaintive guitar pop. I think I’m going to like them a lot.
