In 2018 Melbourne indie-garage upstarts The Rollercanes cemented their arrival on the Oz musical landscape in the form of their thumping debut album, ‘Less The Love Between Us’. Since then the band certainly can’t be accused of resting on their laurels, continuing to win new converts with their blistering live shows and now dropping a brand new track in the form of ‘Cost Of Living’, which the band will officially unveil on 5 April.
‘Cost Of Living’ sees the rowdy three piece slightly reign in their full throttle tendencies to deliver a more measured, yet no less hard hitting, statement of sonic intent.
The track revels and shines in its impressive use of quiet/loud dynamics, set to a tale of young musos pursuing their passion while dealing with the realities of everyday life and what the future may hold. Commencing in hushed tones, at around the 30 second mark the track literally leaps out of the speakers in a burst of pent up angst before locking into an insistent, mid paced groove which ebbs and flows off the back of its impassioned chorus, thumping groove and fuzzed out guitar attack.
And local fans can officially get excited, with the band set to showcase ‘Cost Of Living’ in the live realm with an upcoming show at Vinnies Dive Bar on 26 April.
