Melbourne, Australia five-piece Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever shared a new song, “In the Capital,” back in February (it was one of our Songs of the Week) and announced that it would be released as a 7-inch today via Sub Pop. Now the B-side, “Read My Mind,” has been shared via a video for the track. Warwick Baker directed the video, which features black & white slow motion footage of a rodeo. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

The band simply had this to say about the video in a press release: “We gave the song to our close friend Baker, a respected Australian photographer, to interpret visually.”
 
Baker said this: “I hoped to observe and document the spectacle of the rodeo, focusing on the performers rather than the audience. Being a vegetarian I found the event confronting, but wanted to document the theater and ritual of the rodeo without glorifying or condemning it.”

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.

When Hope Downs was announced the band shared a video for a new song, “Talking Straight” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared a lyric video for another song from the album, “An Air Conditioned Man” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week), as well as album closer “The Hammer” (also one of our Songs of the Week). The album also includes the previously shared single “Mainland.” After the album’s release they shared a black & white video for “Time In Common” and a video for “Sister’s Jeans.”
