San Cisco has a pep to its step. The band’s music is bouncy and jubilant, with the free-spirited ramshackle instrumentation of Delta Spirit and Cold War Kids. The band is giving away its track “Awkward,” a simple, cute back-and-forth between its easily likable male and female vocalists.

San Cisco’s best song, however, is “Rocket Ship,” which at first feels similarly simplistic, but builds into a surprisingly powerful “ohh la la la” sing-along and a fun stomp-clap to close it out. The song’s sparse piano-and-percussion opening also allows lead singer Jordi Davieson to flex his interesting vocals, which bring to mind The Kooks lead singer Luke Pritchard.
