Band Of The Week // SAN CISCO
Wistful and enchantment-inducing, there’s a lot to be felt with the newest San Cisco single.
Australia’s San Cisco turn up the notch on feelings of nostalgia and bittersweetness with their newest single Skin, the first single to be taken off their upcoming album slated for release in 2020.
Bringing in laid-back bluesy influences and stirring melodies, Skin is a jubilant and spirited track despite the potential of the heavy, melancholy-tinged lyricism to weigh it down. Exploring the vulnerability we show towards the decisions of our love interests and the budding heartbreak, there remains an optimistic triumph to be taken from the track as the infectious chorus breezes in as touch of wistfulness with a hooking tune that you won’t be able to resist. There’s no shortage of a groovy beat either for you to sway along to.
Vocalist and guitarist Jordi Davieson says of the track:
‘Skin’ is about being left by a partner that was meant to be ‘forever.’ Being frustrated with the fact you have no control of the situation and living at the mercy of your soon to not be lover’s decisions. You still see a small glimmer of hope, but ultimately it’s over,
Feeling smitten with the track, we got to know this exciting young band and discussed what advice they would give for someone relating to the situation of the track, amongst other topics.
What’s a motto you live by?
Life is all about balance.
If your sound had a colour, what colour would it be?
If you could set the track to a movie, which movie would it be the soundtrack to?
I don’t know! I’m really bad with movies! Probably some sad romantic cult film.
What are your go-to tracks when you’re suffering from heartbreak?
Magnolia by Gang of Youths and So Good at Being in Trouble by Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
What advice would you give to someone who was in the situation of the track?
I know it seems like the end of the world but it’s not. Also if someone just doesn’t have any love left for you accept that fact and trust the process and try moving on the best you can without being a resentful dick head, it’s probably both of your faults it didn’t work out.
And finally, what does music mean to you?
So many things. I’ve always found it amazing how listening to a song or an album takes you back to a memory or a time in your life better than any photograph can. Also song writing is great therapy for me, it helps me get all the shit out of my head and heart and do something useful with it and finally it gives me purpose.
