San Cisco are proud to present second single “Girls Do Cry” from their debut EP, Golden Revolver. Shot in New York by an independent fashion design collective, the track’s vintage-inspired clip was a lucky discovery.
San Cisco drummer, Scarlett Stevens, uncovered the piece of footage by chance, posted on an underground fashion blog ‘Cat Party”. After introduction, Hannah Metz—clip co-director and slumber party beauty—thought the passage a perfect fit for Girls Do Cry. The women seen in the video are all independent fashion designers themselves. There’s an undeniable synergy between the splendour, strength and individuality of the small NY fashion collective, and the liberated youthful abandon of this foursome of teens from Fremantle, WA, that colours the ‘Girls Do Cry’ collaboration.
San Cisco are the latest indie act to emerge from Fremantle in sunny Western Australia. On the weekends they go skateboarding, play Nintendo 64 and make a bit of indie pop on the side. Scarlett bangs the drums, Nick plays bass and Jordi & Josh are the guys that play the guitars, write the songs and sing them. I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t a bit jealous.
For the past year or so, these budding indie popsters have been quite busy. They’ve played a ton of local shows, performed at a smorgasbord of festivals (including Big Day Outand Laneway), and self-produced/released their debut EP, Golden Revolver, which has just hit stores and already found a home on Triple J and community radio around Australia. On top of all that, they also graduated from high school.
Confident with stage presence and strong with vocals, San Cisco brings to the table an impressive brand of upbeat summer pop. I for one hope they don’t slow down anytime soon and i’m crossing my fingers for some US tour dates. In the meantime, enjoy the title track and video below.
