San Cisco’s storm came in much like a front approaching the port in their hometown of Fremantle; swift and eerily beautiful. Initially whipped up in the wake of high school graduation, the quartet 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 Schramto 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, via 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 before they unleashed their third album, The Water onto the world in 2017, an album as diverse in its sound as it is in subject matters.
The Water was met with success around the globe following tours in the USA, Europe and Australia with highlights including acclaimed performances at Splendour In The Grass and One Night Stand, and lead single ‘Hey Did I Do You Wrong?’ coming in at #79 on Triple J’s revered Hottest 100 of 2017.
In early 2018, long-time friend and bassist Nick Gardner announced his departure to pursue other interests. Taking the reigns is another long-time friend and amazing musician hailing from Fremantle, Jennifer Aslett. After spending the first half of the year touring across Australia, San Cisco will head back to the studio to begin work on their next record.
