San Cisco Delivers In Their Latest Album
In early May Australian indie-pop band San Cisco released their third album The Water.
The Water was announced as radio station Triple J’s featured album of the week for the first week of May.
Within three days of the album’s release it’s already climbing the iTunes album charts sitting at number eight within the alternative genre.
While San Cisco is mostly known for their 2012 hit Awkward which managed to break into the commercial radio charts, their latest album is a complete evolution from this.
For the group of four from Freemantle this album is the perfect example of playing with different sounds while still maintaining a core feel to the music.
The best way to describe it is upbeat and funky. It’s full of songs with quick tempos, catchy choruses and psychedelic bridges.
The Water feels like a natural evolution compared their previous album Gracetown.
If you’re a fan of the more chilled out and zen appearances of the indie-pop genre than this album might not be your cup of tea, where even the slower songs still have a funky vibe to them.
Speaking to Zoë Radas from Stack, frontman Jordi Davieson says the songs aren’t meant to be about one memory in particular – one of the benefits of the pop music genre.
“… it doesn’t matter what I think it’s about at all! People grab it and they relate it to their life, which is just awesome. It’s almost like a multi-tool. Really, you can change any songs into whatever you’re needing in your life at that point in time.”
Davieson’s approach to writing can be understood when listening to the album. No song tells a specific story, with the listener having the power to personalise the music to their experience.
San Cisco has announced a national tour to coincide with the album’s release, and will be coming to Canberra in early June of 2017.
