From high school kids to playing sell-out shows, indie pop band San Cisco has made waves in the Aussie music scene and hit the road to Broome this week as part of a national tour. Known for their rough lo-fi garage energy and catchy hooks, the trio will perform at the Roebuck Bay Hotel on September 17, showcasing hits from their recent album Between You and Me. Lead singer and guitarist Jordi Davieson said the new album was the band’s best body of work to date. “We love all of our records, but this one was special because all three of us were very involved in the whole process,” he said. “It’s the most proud we’ve ever been of an album and the release was scary because we weren’t sure how it would go down.” The band was stunned to see the album debut at number three on the ARIA charts, selected as Triple J’s feature album and have four singles in the Hottest 100 countdown in 2020. “It was an amazing feeling and we were really happy; it had been in the making for three years and we had revisited some of the tracks along the way,” Davieson said. Now touring the album in WA, Davieson said he was “blown away” by how many shows the band had played. “We have played more shows in WA over the past year than we have in our entire music careers,” he said. “COVID-19 seriously stuffed us around. We missed out on hundreds of shows on our national tour.” Hailing from Fremantle and established in 2009, the band was picked up by Triple J Unearthed and has since travelled to perform shows in New York, Mexico City, Vancouver, Berlin and Singapore. Alongside bandmates Josh Biondillo and Scarlett Stevens, Davieson said San Cisco loved to be organic with its sound. “We pretty much throw ideas at the wall and see what sticks,” he said. “Josh will play chord progressions and I’ll sing along to it until we hone a vibe, then we’ll show Scarlett and she might say it needs to be more like this or that.” Davieson said he drew inspiration for writing songs from real life events and situations. “It’s often relationships, whether it’s friendships or romantic relationships, but I normally find it hard to write happy songs,” he said. “I like to tap in to that vulnerability, I find it therapeutic.” The artist said the track Flaws was closest to his heart. “Flaws is super special to me. I wrote it myself and I had it there in the making for years,” Davieson said. “When I listen to music it makes me feel not so alone, especially when I’m going through something shitty, and I want to recreate that feeling for other people.” San Cisco plans to have fun and be playful with their next record, which they have already begun working on.
