After a solid year of touring and festivals San Cisco released Gracetown, the follow-up album to their 2013 self-titled debut, in the UK on April 6th. The band will be back in the UK for three shows in September around the release of their next single Magic.
Coming out of the small coastal resort of Fremantle, a beautiful town nestling in the shadow of Perth’s gleaming monoliths and separated from the more fashionable parts of Oz by thousands of miles of red dirt, San Cisco is comprised of singer Jordi Davieson, Josh Biondillo (guitar), Nick Gardner (bass) and Scarlett Stevens (drums).
On current album Gracetown, San Cisco have enlisted the help of producer and long-term collaborator Steven Schram, and the presence of this ‘fifth Beatle’ is manifest from the first. Schram has furthered the band’s experimentation with new styles and textures to great effect. Prior to visiting The Compound (studio-home of fellow Fremantle friend and musician John Butler) Josh and Jordi crafted the bones of the album at Rada Studios with friend and musician Matt Gio. Schram then encouraged them to tread boldly where they had not yet gone in sonic terms.
