The floods are leaving people homeless and families split

There was a housing crisis on the Northern Rivers, then we had the floods of 2022 and the issue has left increasing numbers of people homeless and struggling to find alternative accommodation.

San Cisco were nominated amongst the crème de la crème in Triple J’s Next Crop Artists of 2012 as well as nominated for a Triple J Unearthed award. Their sophomore EP Awkward is slated for release on 3 February and features five new songs from the band, including a rousing cover of the Arctic Monkeys’ 505.

They are joined by touring buddies The Jungle Giants. If the way The Jungle Giants welcomed in the new year is any indication they won’t stop in 2012 – playing a show at Brisbane’s boutique new year eve festival, No Years, and then playing the same night at Mooloolaba’s New Year’s Festival! They’ve had ears turned in their direction since being picked up by Triple J with their catchy hit Mr Polite , with matching inventive stop-motion animation clip turning a few heads in their direction.
