The showstopping choreography and nocturnal moods perfectly complement the song’s high-energy dancefloor-ready crescendo.

Entirely recorded and produced by the band, their fourth studio album is a generous and compelling 9-track propelled by a renewed synergy: fueled up with fuzz for days, the band keeps their myth-laden doom ethos strong, while enhancing their garage-psych facet for a spirited saga full of riff-driven plot twists.

One of the album’s most honest and vulnerable tracks, “Nena” debuted via FLOOD Magazine alongside a surreal video directed by Jonathan van Herik that follows a vampire’s birthday.

What seems simple at first becomes illusory and hard to grasp as time and memory melt together. Do vampires celebrate birthdays?”

San Cisco Releases New Single and Video for “Under The Light”
Co-written with Jay Watson (GUM, Pond, Tame Impala), new single “Under the Light” careens with piston-like momentum, striking the delicate balance between euphoria and melancholy. What began as something more closely related to Sia’s ‘Chandelier’, “almost like a bad girl party anthem, a sweaty nightclub scenario, and regretting things the next day,” eventually revealed itself as much more profound throughout the writing process. “We thought about a club where at the end of the night the lights come up and the truth is revealed. It became a metaphor for having a spotlight on us as people, and discovering hard truths about growing up,” drummer Scarlett Stevens says. “I thought by this age I’d probably have everything sorted, but really it’s just as much of a mess as it’s ever been. Actually more so!”

Their latest single “CRAWLERS” explores the idea of a toxic relationship and the line between symbiosis and parasitism. Drawn from personal experience, the song equates a toxic person to an insect, nothing more than a soul-sucking parasite. While we are quick to blame them for their indiscretions, upon further reflection however, the earth-shattering conclusion that we are also at fault can be just as devastating, as we see ourselves “becoming a crawler too”.
