Scarlett, Jordi, Josh et Nick forment à eux quatre, la jeune et fraîche formation San Cisco. On peut décrire le son des Australiens comme une pop low-fi à penchant un peu garage et ils citent volontiers comme influences MGMT, The Flaming Lips et Vampire Weekend. Addictif à souhait, leur single «Awkward» est à l’image de leur premier album éponyme : une succession de tubes en puissance ! On peut dire que Fat Possum (The Black Keys, Spiritualized) a, encore une fois, flairé le bon coup.


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.”

The Water was released on 5 May 2017; not content to simply release their new tunes, the band hit the road over May and June for an Australian national tour spanning 6 states, 1 capital territory and 20 shows. Over August and September, San Cisco take The Water to the West coast of the USA, Mexico, the UK and Europe.
