ALBUM REVIEW: Self-Titled by San Cisco

Australian Indie-pop act San Cisco have just dropped their Self-titled debut album. After making a name for themselves with indie-darling tracks like “Golden Revolver” and “Awkward” off their debut EP Awkward, San Cisco continues with the same “summer soundtrack” vibe on that drew fans to them in the first place.

For fans of Vampire Weekend and Tame Impala, the album consist of infectious summer jams that will no doubt be the soundtrack to many a road trip, most notably “Fred Astaire” and “Stella”. Easy and breezy, the eclectic combination of effortless synth, tambourines and chunky guitar riffs give off a doowop-meets-the beach vibe that is nothing short of indie-pop perfection. We’ve noticed a trend among bands digging into the doowop sound for inspiration and frankly we can’t get enough of it.

The charming fusion of both Jordi Davieson and Scarlett Stevens vocals on several of the tracks (“Beach”, “Hunter”, “Wild Things”, etc) blend together flawlessly for that perfect dreamy vibe that carries through the majority of the album. If we had to narrow down this album to one word it would be “FUN”. San Cisco obviously has fun creating and experimenting with the sounds and structure of their music, creating a unique spin on their music with dynamic synth-pop arrangements.
