When asked about the origins of their band name in a 2011 interview, guitarist/vocalist/keyboardist Josh Biondillo said "The reason we went with San Cisco was because it is nothing; like a blank canvas which we were able to sculpt into whatever we wanted."
Although still relatively new to the scene, the band has already begun filling that blank canvas. On the strength of their low-fi garage pop sound and debut EP, Golden Revolver, the Australian four-piece was nominated for a 2011 Unearthed J Award and has generated considerable buzz surrounding their debut self-titled album which will be released this November from Fat Possum Records.
While in town for their show at the Turf Club, the band stopped by The Current studios to perform a few songs and chat with Mac Wilson about the new record.
Songs performed: "Fred Astaire," "No Friend" and "Awkward."
