Lt. Dan here with my DJ pick of the week. After releasing their debut album last year, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever had a wildly successful year full of touring and critical acclaim. Now, the Melbourne band has released a new single, “In the Capital,” via Sup Pop.
Rolling Blackouts C.F.’s Fran Keaney describes the writing process for the track, “I first had the idea for the melody and some of the lyrics when I was swimming. It’s taken a while to finish the song, to make it feel like the initial feeling. I can’t neatly describe it, but something like connection despite distance. I was thinking about transience and water and death and big cities and fishing towns and moon river.”
Listen to “In The Capital” below and let us know what you think!
