Album cover artwork for Between You And Me by San CiscoThis is San Cisco’s fourth album, but they still sound fresh and full of youthful exuberance.

“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.
