San Cisco will be releasing their third album ‘The Water’ on May 5th via their own Island City Records, distributed through Metropolitan Groove Merchants in America. This is the follow up to 2015’s ‘Gracetown’. The songs on The Water were penned by singer Jordi Davieson over a relatively short time span and in his words, are “a good snapshot of my life and headspace earlier this year”.
Production wise, The Water takes a new direction from previous releases and is more of a collaborative effort that came to life in the studio the during recording process. The result is an album that is as diverse in its sound as it is in subject matters. The album was made over a six-month period last year, in staggered sessions that went for one or two weeks at a time. Drummer and singer Scarlett Stevens says the plan with The Water, which was written and produced with San Cisco’s long-time collaborator Steve Schram, was “to refine the San Cisco sound”. Not only has that sound been refined and enhanced by 10 deliciously upbeat pop songs, but the hook quotient has been increased significantly.
