From busking on the streets of Fremantle to performing in front of thousands amid the chaos and bright lights of New York City, eclectic indie pop rockers San Cisco have endured a world of change since breaking into the Australian music scene three years ago.
So much so that even lead vocalist Jordi Davieson admits he has had to quietly pinch himself while standing on stage staring back at the crowd.
"We're in a very good position, we're very lucky to be where we are," Davieson told AAA this week.
"Life has basically been flipped on its head, especially with also finishing school, it's pretty much just band and travelling, then we're back (in Perth) for a few weeks catching up with people."
At just 18, it goes without saying that Davieson has seen as much of the globe as any other worldly traveller. Having just returned from the band's first world tour in the UK, Europe and the US with band mates Josh Biondillo, Nick Garner and Scarlett Stevens - they signed to international record labels Fat Possum Records and RCA Records back in September - the quartet are now gearing up for another stint abroad.
"We'll be doing a bit of a tour supporting the Vaccines, then we'll be going to Europe for a bit, then we'll head to America for South by South West," he said.
But Davieson said it was good to be back on home soil. The foursome, who grew up in Fremantle and met at high school, will spend the next two weeks in their home town before heading off around Australia for their first national tour, which ties in with the release of their self-titled debut album on November 23.
"We haven't really played shows around Australia at all, so it's going to be good to see how everyone is going," Davieson said.
But before setting off across the country, Davieson will play at a handful of local gigs including a performance at Salt Restaurant in Fremantle tomorrow night for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's fundraiser, Art for the Ocean.The performance kicks off at 7pm. Tickets cost $80 at the door or by phoning 0410 146 981.
