Event InformationInspired by a trip taken by singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Russo in early 2017 to his grandparents’ birthplace, the Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily, 'Mainland’ boasts the same urgency of tracks like 'Clean Slate' and 'Sick Bug' that helped bring the band to the attention of punters and won them critical acclaim.
Russo says of the track's inspiration:
“I was reading about a refugee crisis unfolding not far away in the Mediterranean Sea. The song is about longing, disillusionment, privilege and holding on to love as a kind of shield.”
Recorded in a secluded house in the Northern NSW wilderness, 'Mainland' marks the first taste of new music from the band since the release of their lauded 2017 EP The French Press.
Since the band's inception, Rolling Blackouts C.F. have carved out a unique place in the local musical landscape with their penchant for hooky guitars and undeniable melodies, married to lyrics that are intelligent and wide-eyed, with an unmistakably-Australian dry wit. The French Press EP landed on many 'Best Of 2017' lists, including The Guardian/The Observer 'Hidden Gems'. Meanwhile, lead single 'French Press' made countless end of year lists including coming in at #10 on Rolling Stone’s Best Songs of 2017, while the band came in at #13 in Paste Magazine's Best New Artists.
Having made waves internationally – they inked a deal with iconic US label Sub Pop at the start of last year and received high-rotation airplay on UK tastemaker BBC6 – the band spent much of 2017 on the road, including multiple sold out shows on their first ever EU tour.
The band kick off 2018 in much the same way, heading out as part of the massive Laneway Festival this February. Having just announced spots on Coachella and Shaky Knees festivals and with more new music on the horizon, Rolling Blackouts C.F. show no signs of slowing down in 2018.
