Australian indie-pop royalty San Cisco reveal their latest single “Honeycomb,” a light, airy and sweet new single that spotlights angelic vocals of Scarlett Stevens. The trio have also released the music video, inviting viewers into a mysterious and enchanting world where nothing is quite as it seems. Listen to the single HERE and watch the video HERE.
San Cisco take a slight sonic detour on the new single introducing elements of electronic, garage and house music throughout “Honeycomb.” The light, airy and angel-like vocals of drummer Scarlett Stevens take center stage on the new track, perfectly matching the dreamy, introspective mood of the track. “Honeycomb is about the moreish feeling of falling in love,” the band explains. “It’s about self-love and self-confidence and the joy of food. It treads this fine line of not wanting to lose yourself to love but also surrendering completely to someone and the sweet feeling that comes with that.”
Shot on the coastline of Prevelly and Gnarabup in the southwest of WA, the band worked with director Caeley Wesson to create the dream-like world of “Honeycomb,” where we get a glimpse of a world where nothing is quite as it seems. “Caeley and I have always talked about doing something together and when she pitched the treatment for ‘Honeycomb’, I knew it was going to be really special,” Scarlett explains. “The song and the beat is already so different for us musically and I love that the visuals reflect that.”
“Honeycomb” follows the recent singles “Horoscope” and “Lost Without You.” It signifies the end of a few months deep in studio sessions split between LA and Fremantle recording the trio’s forthcoming fifth studio album, a collaborative work with producer James Ireland (Pond, Cuco) and mixed by Grammy award winning engineer Neal H. Pogue (Steve Lacy, Tyler The Creator, Outkast) and Anthony Dolhai (Mø, Carly Rae Jepsen, Kesha).
Renowned for their energetic and engaging live shows, San Cisco will take the stage this weekend at Darwin’s Bass In The Grass Festival on Saturday, May 20th ahead of a headline show at The Roey in Broome, WA on Sunday 21st May. With no signs of slowing down, the band will also be playing Bali’s 2023 Dream Machine Festival and Mackay’s Be Social Fest in June.
