SINGLE REVIEW: San Cisco – Skin

It’s been a little while in between releases for indie-pop trio San Cisco, but after having some time out of the spotlight they are curiously itching to get back in front of crowds and deliver more dreamy vibes.

The Fremantle favourites will be hitting the road this November and December for some exclusive intimate shows which will see them previewing new tracks from their upcoming fourth studio album (out early 2020) as well as all the fan favourites you’ve come to know and love. But to coincide with this cheeky little tour announcement they’ve also got a vibey new song for your ears. 

‘Skin’ is a catchy little track that blends together pure 80’s nostalgia with chilled out aesthetics and a sassy outlook on heartbreak. But while the attitude is there, so is the tender vulnerability that hears them opening up in the most honest way they have to date. In the lead up to the first chorus lead vocalist Jordi Davieson candidly admits; “I swear the more I loved you, the further you pushed me away”. 

Throughout the song they reflect on being left by a partner that was meant to be “forever”. From all of the memories they shared over the years, they still believe that they are meant to be together but the hope is slowly fading away. 

It’s an emotionally charged song that has a lot of strong and quotable lyrics. But it’s the catchy chorus that really strikes a cord and gives you pure nostalgia and reflection intertwined with a pulsating synth production and strong rhythmic melody. “Your skin on my skin is what’s been missing. In my sweet dreams, you’re the one that I’m kissing, now you’re gone” 

The song is very aesthetically pleasing sonically, and gradually builds to create something that highlights their growth as a band. It grabs your attention in a different way than ‘Run’ or ‘About You’ does and that’s an exciting thing.
