This near-perfect garage pop tune stormed Australia last year and wound up #7 for 2011 on the highly-watched Triple J Hottest 100. San Cisco are uber-young and come from the Aussie town of Freemantle. If you are hooked on hooks, you will probably love the clean guitar intro as well as the boy/girl interchange on the vocals. Awkward is the title of their EP, which drops in the US October 23. They will be at CMJ this week and then will celebrate their record release next Tuesday at The Echo in Los Angeles.
