Video of the Moment #2199: San Cisco

I guess the days of bands purposely obscuring the meaning of their songs are gone. This summer, we had Los Angeles ladies Warpaint returning with ‘New Song’, which was – surprise! – a brand new single. On the other side of the globe, Australian’s San Cisco, too, decided to be lazy, revealing this week a song called ‘B Side’, which will be the b-side to an upcoming single not quite released to the general public yet. Darn. The band decided to keep things in the family for this one, taking travel footage of band member Jordi’s little sister Peppa and her boyfriend Matt on their travels in Japan. As might be expected for two kids visiting a foreign country, there is an excessive amount of silliness, but the DIY video pairs remarkably well with the surprisingly lo-fi approach the Fremantle indie popsters have taken with the song. Guess we wait for the a-side, though I’m going to facepalm if we find out it’s called ‘A Side’. Please, San Cisco, please, just no. For more of TGTF’s coverage on San Cisco over the years, go here.
