Three years after the release of their third album, The Water, we're finally getting more from San Cisco.
The band is releasing new music today, September 4 2020. A new album called Between You And Me, it will be the fourth studio project from this Western Australian trio.
The album features the triple j Hottest-100-voted songs singles When I Dream and Skin, and also new single On the Line, among its 11 tracks
It’s clear that Between You and Me tells a story. One of loss and letting go. The lyrical stylings reveal lovesick tales calls gone to voicemail and the moody melodies convey a pensive energy - endless ponderings of what went wrong. It's an album two years and - at least - one sadly remembered love affair in the making.
One of the new singles on the record, Messages, was revealed in the lead up to the album launch.
"‘Messages’ is a tongue-in-cheek bop about shitty friends," lead vocalist Jordi Davieson writes.
"Originally the lyrics were loosely inspired by my frustration with Scarlett never replying to my messages, but when we decided the track would be much better with her singing vocals instead, she added in a few of her annoyances about me. It turned into quite a constructive process for our friendship! She still never replies to messages."
Between You and Me is a project recorded between San Cisco's hometown of Fremantle, WA and Mullumbimby in Northern New South Wales. Fremantle is a town of sun-baked sandstone and sea breezes, an ideal location to record this introspective and wistful body of work.

It was recorded with longtime-band-collaborator Steve Schram and produced with extras from POND’s James Ireland.
"I feel like we're all equally invested in this record," says Jordi.
"It's a feeling we haven't really had since the first record, when you release a bunch of songs you've been playing for two or three years. We've really grown with these songs. I still love them the same as the day we wrote them."
Smooth, catchy and with a nod to the influences from the 80s, you'll want to add Between You And Me to your work, home and car playlists asap.
