San Cisco’s storm came in much like a front approaching the port in their home town of Fremantle; swift and eerily beautiful. Initially whipped up in the wake of high school graduation, the foursome of Jordi, Josh, Scarlett, and Nick soon found themselves unwittingly defining hipster culture with the video for their breakout hit “Awkward.”
Fast forward to 2015 where San Cisco enlisted the help of producer and long-term collaborator Steven Schram to deliver their sophomore album Gracetown which debuted at #2 on the ARIA charts. The album showcased a new sound for the band – more worldly approach to life; exploring the tyranny of love, displacement, homesickness, heartache and heartbreak through disco, funk, soul and hip hop undertones.
Extensive touring to eager audiences around the world took up the majority of 2015 and early 2016 ,playing festivals at home and headline tours from Maitland to Mexico. The remainder of the year was some down time and pulling together new song ideas, earwormy hooks and catchy choruses.
Earlier this year, San Cisco unleashed their third studio album The Water onto the world. With singles “SloMo”, “Hey, Did I Do You Wrong?” and “The Distance”, and sold out shows across Australia and the globe, the album has cemented San Cisco as a force to be reckoned with.
