Listening Post

Yet another great band coming out of Australia, listen to the new track from Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever

They hail from Melbourne and this first track from their new EP sounds a bit like The War On Drugs

It’s been noted before, but worth saying again, that this year a lot of good music has originated from Australia. Our personal favourites have included The Goon Sax, Julia Jacklin and Gabriella Cohen.

Here’s another, from Melbourne, and they’ve just signed to Sub Pop in the States.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever‘s frontman Fran Keaney sounds a lot like The War On Drugs’ Adam Granduciel or Interpol’s Paul Banks.

In the band it’s two cousins (Fran, and Joe) and two brothers (Tom and Joe R), and drummer called Marcel.

‘Julie’s Place’ is the first track to come off a new EP lined up for 2017.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
