Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever – Endless Rooms (2022)

The third album from Australia’s Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever arrives with their familiar three guitar attack.  Several of the tracks have an environmental bent including the chiming “Tidal River” that strips everything back in the refrain and the midtempo “Dive Deep”. The crisp drumming of Marcel Tussie stands out on third single “My Echo”.  

There is a driving beat on “Blue Eye Lake” with its “you can ride the back of a star and go anywhere” lyric.  Likewise, “Saw You at the Eastern Beach” has an atmospheric, celestial effect. As with the first two Rolling Blackouts C.F. albums, there are a few songs that float by without leaving much of a mark.  On Endless Rooms, those moments are fewer and the songs that do resonate, really cut through to make a very good guitar rock record.

7.5/10
