Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have today released 'Cameo', the final offering before the release of sophomore record Sideways To Italy on Friday. 

Following singles 'Falling Thunder', 'She's There' and 'Cars in Space', the latest track drives with a similarly surging energy, building from Fran Keaney's lone voice and strums before hit with the punchy rhythms and crashing textures the Melbourne band have become known for. 

Speaking of the track, Keaney notes thatโ€œThis is a love song. Itโ€™s about reaching through time portals. The lyrics were pieced together over about a year like a little puzzle. I found the first pieces in Rushworth, and the last pieces in Darwin.โ€

The five-piece gained substantial recognition for their acclaimed 2018 debut Hope Downs, and the forthcoming full-length looks to follow suit as it has already gained eager praise. 

"Cameo" also follows last week's announcement of the band's 2021 UK and Ireland tour, including their biggest UK headline show at Shepherd's Bush Empire; the tour comes with support from up-and-coming Dutch act Pip Blom

Sideways To Italy is released Friday 5th June via Sub Pop Records
