About San Cisco
Former school friends, Australian four piece San Cisco are set to release the single Awkward in the UK on August 5th . This track is taken from their forthcoming self-titled album which will be released through Columbia Records on October 7th. The band will also be back in the UK in October post their appearance on the Festival Republic stage at Reading & Leeds festival this year.
San Cisco craft a melodic upbeat sound so infectious and sun-kissed that you’d think the spirit of a lesser-known Beach Boy has been grafted into their songwriting sessions. Hailing from Fremantle, the three boys (Jordi, Nick and Josh) and one girl (Scarlett) made a sizeable splash in their native land a year or so back in the top ten and – as these things go – with a multi-million views YouTube clip. The band say ‘we see it (Awkward) as the brat child of our music catalogue’, and they wrote the song in just two hours. The lyrical narrative is about a flash pan romance that devolves into pure stalking, and has a promising touch of the macabre.
The success of this single led to their deals with Fat Possum and Columbia records. Check out the video here: http://youtu.be/ukNOaKeUEQY
San Cisco’s self-titled debut album will be released on October 7th and is a teenage riot of love, pain and short attention spans. They’ve got everything covered, from surfing to mixtapes, friendship to videogames, and it’s all there in short, sweet bursts of jangly pop joy. Whether they’re singing about having too many thoughts running through their brain (on the fuzzy disco of Wild Things) or realising you might not be good enough for your girlfriend (the lively nostalgia of Fred Astaire), it’s impossible to resist their infectious buzz. Awkward will be the third single to be taken from the album following those two songs, and the band have also previously put out the Beach EP, which was released late 2012.
