Okay. So there's this new catchy indie-pop band from Australia called San Cisco (I'm wondering if they're hiding Fran somewhere in their fresh, bright-eyed pockets) and for a group of just-graduated-high-school lads, they've put together a pretty good song called "Golden Revolver," which just sings of happy days ahead and the zest of youth. If you're an old, embittered soul, however, I might stay away because if you read on, their life just sounds downright peachy and I wouldn't want you to be offended by their carefree music-making in sunny Australia.

Who's not feeling a little younger and more optimistic already?

A little about San Cisco:
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.
San Cisco have spent the past year or so graduating high school, performing at festivals (including Big Day Out and Laneway) and playing round town pretty much every weekend. But don’t let their youth fool you. They have also produced their debut EP called Golden Revolver, which has just hit stores and already found a home on Triple J and community radio around Australia. Confident with stage presence and strong with vocals San Cisco continue to impress with their brand of upbeat summer pop.
Produced by Matthew Chequer (Little Birdy) & Steven Schram (Little Red, Cat Empire, Little Birday), the EP is an eclectic mix of indie pop with folk undertones, slashes of synth and influences ranging from Bright Eyes to Vampire Weekend.
