Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever embrace the spotlight in the new video for ‘Cameo’

New album ‘Sideways To New Italy’ was released last Friday (June 19th)

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have unveiled a brand new video for ‘Cameo’

Another prize gem from their recently revealed new album ‘Sideways To New Italy’, the video finds the band well and truly embracing the spotlight…

Speaking about the video, Fran Keaney from the band explains: “We made this video with Nick Mckk, who shares our vision for the earnest and the absurd. This is our first video to feature skivvies, a wall of cardboard boxes and a human-powered rotating stage.”

Director Nick Mckk continues: “Fran had the idea to separate each body part playing, disembodied like the famous Queen artwork, I think it was Tom who really wanted to dress like Molloy, the cat burglar from The Simpsons. White sneakers, black pants and a turtleneck. I was very for this.

“Because I’m a fool and I don’t know how to work a gimbal (stabiliser), I ended up shooting a lot of the clip on rollerblades, which let me zoom around the spinning stage. Set Designer Grace Goodwin and I created the big bricks that the band could smash through, representing the disintegration of memory and the rebuilding of recollection. I mean, it was that for me, I can’t speak for the band!”

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever’s new album ‘Sideways To New Italy’ arrived in the world on Friday (June 19th), with another stunning collection of summertime anthems.
