“This is going to be our first proper run of shows in some time and, to be honest, we are just really excited to show off our new songs in real life! It’s our favourite part of the whole being-in-a-band thing,” the band shares.

Joining them on this thrilling journey will be Fremantle’s own Noah Dillon, adding an extra layer of musical excellence to the mix.

Their latest single, Under The Light, was co-written with Jay Watson (GUM, Pond, Tame Impala) and captures the essence of euphoria and melancholy in perfect harmony. The song’s momentum is reminiscent of a well-oiled machine, and its emotion-filled lyrics invite listeners to experience a rollercoaster of feelings.

Drummer Scarlett Stevens explains, “It became a metaphor for having a spotlight on us as people, and discovering hard truths about growing up.” The track’s creative and captivating music video was shot in the remnants of the once-thriving theme park ‘Atlantis’ in Perth, WA, creating an atmosphere of lost mythology and wonder.

Under The Light offers a tantalizing glimpse into the band’s new phase of maturity, vulnerability, and experimentation. Their fifth studio album, a collaboration with producer James Ireland and mixed by Grammy award-winning engineers Neal H. Pogue and Anthony Dolhai, is poised to take fans on an unforgettable musical journey.

Hailing from Fremantle, Western Australia, San Cisco’s ten-year musical journey has been nothing short of extraordinary. With four studio albums under their belt, the band has amassed millions of streams and garnered critical acclaim. They’ve rocked out at headline shows, thrilled audiences at major festivals like Splendour In The Grass and Lollapalooza, and their fourth studio album, Between You and Me, soared to the top three on the ARIA Album Charts.
