San (Fran) Cisco

When one thinks of Australia one generally thinks of Melbourne and Sydney, but very rarely does someone mention the WEST coast of Down Under. Yet it's out there big, massive, and teaming with life. Well that's where San Cisco come into play. This rather quirky pop group comes to us from the less than bustling Fremantle Western Australia.

Taking their own path (and a bit of a roundabout one at that) to pop stardom the band has developed a natural chemistry that helped shaped their second album, Awkward.  Quirky, fun, and good the band are quickly developing into something bigger than the frontier of their hometown. 

Penned in the studio one afternoon, lead single "Awkward" is an unmistakable pop gem featuring the vocal talents of both Jordi Davieson and drummer, Scarlett Stevens.  It's a sugary pop thrill that's unforgettable and as I sit here and type this I can still hear the chorus ringing in my ears.  The EP features five tracks of indie pop goodness, showcasing Jordi’s turn of phrase and Josh Biondillo’s varied influences in his music writing. In its entirety it is an eclectic mix of indie pop with dashes of rock and slashes of synth.

The Awkward EP is slated for a digital release in the U.S. on February 7th through their own record label Island City Records independently through MGM.
