The video for San Cisco's taut boy/girl disco-rock ditty "Awkward" finds the Australian foursome so irresistibly cutesy in sound and look that they were seemingly birthed in a lab to soundtrack future Bing commercials. Already a fixture on 89.3 the Current thanks to "Awkward," San Cisco perform at the Turf Club directly following a barrage of shows at New York's buzz-building CMJ Music Marathon while en route to Los Angeles. It's pretty much a lock that any return appearances will be at decidedly bigger venues. They're far from a one trick pony, however: Dutiful YouTube listening to their overseas singles reveals a highly polished band with dashes of Vampire Weekend's spritely melodicism at work in tunes like "Golden Revolver." With Chaos Chaos.
