Title: Awkward EP
Catalogue Number: Island City SAN02
Review Format: EP
Release Year: 2012

I like a bit of the old pop music. You know what I mean. Proper music that you can sing along with. Music that is not too damn serious for its own good. It is, of course, not an easy thing to create but San Cisco have done just that with their second EP “Awkward”.

The killer track is, of course, the title track with “Awkward” being the kind of quirky little gem that entices you to sing out loud when you think no one is looking. However, this distinctly young Australian band show that they are more than a should have one hit band with a feel for surefooted commercial song writing being clearly evident in “Rocket Ship” and the cleverer than it sounds “Lover”.
So, is there potential for greater things? I think so. Until then, I am more than happy to sing along to “Awkward”.
