After a landmark 12 months for Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, who released their debut album Hope Downs to worldwide critical acclaim in June 2018, Sub Pop Records are excited to reveal new music from the Melbourne band in the form of single, ‘In The Capital’. The track (which is now live on all digital platforms) will also feature on a limited edition 7-inch alongside a second A-side single, titled ‘Read My Mind’. The vinyl will be released on April 26th and is available to pre-order now. To celebrate the highly-anticipated arrival of new music, the band have announced extensive touring plans for the UK and Europe this summer – please find a full touring itinerary further below.

Fran Keaney describes how ‘In The Capital’ came together: “I first had the idea for the melody and some of the lyrics when I was swimming. It’s taken a while to finish the song, to make it feel like the initial feeling. I can’t neatly describe it, but something like connection despite distance. I was thinking about transience and water and death and big cities and fishing towns and moon river.”
