San Cisco : Between You and Me Review
By Bea Willis
Bringing us surf rock and indie pop sounds from down under is a band called San Cisco. The band started in 2009 under the name King George with their four original members, Jordi, Josh, Scarlett, and Nick. In 2018 bassists, Nick was replaced by longtime friend Jennifer. Now San Cisco is a three-piece comprising Jordi Davieson (guitar, lead vocals), Josh Biondillo (guitar, vocals), and Scarlett Stevens (drums, vocals). San Cisco is releasing Between You and Me via Island City Records/Nettwerk Music Group. This is their fourth studio album, which features eleven tracks.
“Skin” begins the San Cisco experience with synth sounds and a clean guitar bending out a melody. Davieson takes the lead on this one. His melody is supported by Stevens vocals too. The trio has a knack for writing catchy melodies and a beat that is pop-rock perfection. A tasteful guitar solo fills the golden ratio and builds to superb three-part harmonies. San Cisco’s sound is stronger than ever.
“Messages” has an upbeat rock feel with Stevens taking the lead. Her voice is airy and light, as the catchy melody delivers the lyrics. The hues of the song and inner brilliance of the lyrics carry the charm of this selection. This catchy, fun style runs through the album with its mild, but constant popping up to rock to make sure the musical magic can be felt.
Between You and Me is sublime in its pop-rock approach, San Cisco will take you on a musical journey for a musical delight. The retro-sounding music is what people are listening to in conjunction with the classic tunes, and San Cisco is a new gem. San Cisco is fun retro music with a little of today’s attitude and influence, Between You and Me.
