San Cisco Announce National Tour & Drop New Single ‘Under The Light’

Australian indie titans San Cisco have announced a national headline tour kicking off from November, and to celebrate have released their latest single Under The Light – an irresistible and infectious, sun-drenched dance anthem – official video clip that perfectly sets the scene for their forthcoming tour.

Renowned for their energetic and ecstatic live show, San Cisco will be hitting the road over November and December on a nine-stop tour playing shows in Kingscliff, Brisbane, Sydney, Gosford, Adelaide and Melbourne, before wrapping it up where it all began in Perth. “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 explain. Bringing a piece of home with them across the country, San Cisco will be joined by fellow Fremantle artist and special guest Noah Dillon. “For anyone planning on attending, please learn the words because the San Cisco choir is taking new members and we wanna hear your sing!” General on-sale available on Monday 14 August, from 9.00am AEST at

Co-written with Jay Watson (GUM, Pond, Tame Impala), new single Under the Light careens with piston-like, motorik momentum (and a faint whiff of A-ha?) striking the delicate balance between euphoria and melancholy. What began as something more closely related to Sia’s ‘Chandelier’, “almost like a bad girl party anthem, a sweaty nightclub scenario, and regretting things the next day”, eventually revealed itself as much more profound throughout the writing process. “We thought about a club where at the end of the night the lights come up and the truth is revealed. It became a metaphor for having a spotlight on us as people, and discovering hard truths about growing up,” drummer Scarlett Stevens says. “I thought by this age I’d probably have everything sorted, but really it’s just as much of a shit-fight as its ever been. Actually more so!”

”“For our third single ‘Under The Light’ we teamed up with director Caely Wesson again to bring you this Aquatic-themed, coastal beach rave, shot in and around the ruins of a bygone Perth theme park, ‘Atlantis’.” San Cisco explain. Shot on location at ‘Atlantis’ – the now abandoned but once thriving theme park in Perth, WA – the official video clip for Under The Light see’s the Fremantle locals dancing around the huge King Neptune statue that was adored by locals but is now a relic. Fascinated by the lost oceanic world of Atlantis and the ancient alien race believed to have lived in it, Director Caely Wessonexplains the location “conjured a lost mythical world and the perfect playground for ‘Under the Light’ with its key lyric blurring the lines of what is real. (Is it fake or is it love?)” On the creative process, Caely adds “I worked with editor James Medlam to cut the footage once again, taking a few cues from Honeycomb layered with some cool vintage footage, some of which we found in the WA archives. I love that the two videos can exist side by side, almost as an ode to the landscapes of WA and a meeting of land and sky.”

Teasing a forthcoming record throughout the year, Under The Light only adds to the anticipation for what’s to come from the new Fremantle trio as they enter a new phase of maturity, vulnerability and experimentation. San Cisco took to their socials in May to share they’d finally finished up on a long few months deep in studio sessions split between LA and Fremantle recording the trio’s fifth studio album – a collaborative work with producer James Ireland (Pond, Cuco) and mixed by Grammy award winning engineer Neal H. Pogue (Steve Lacy, Tyler The Creator, Outkast) and Anthony Dolhai (Mø, Carly Rae Jepsen, Kesha).
