“You’re the worst best friend that I’ve ever had,” Jordi Davieson sings in Messages. “I sent you a message, but you never replied.” Later, he confides: “I’ve got a few things to unpack.” Indeed, he has.
But even when they’re singing about lost love and farewelling friends, San Cisco still put a smile on your face. Shine reminds of Ben Lee, When I Dream floats like Fleetwood Mac, Alone is a brilliant Britpop ballad, and On The Line’s potent male/female vocal dynamic – something they should utilise more – will have you thinking of The Mavis’s and The Human League. Between You And Me is a captivating pop confection.
Between You And Me by San Cisco is out Friday Sep 4 via MGM.
