As far as spectacular rises to power go, it's hard to beat the San Cisco story. Touted as a 'band to watch' last year after the release of their debut single Golden Revolver, the Fremantle based 4-piece then casually whipped out a little ode to stalking called Awkward. It was around that time that, to put it lightly, things got very, very real. The song (and its accompanying cute-as-a-button clip) raced around the airwaves and earned San Cisco a starring role on the iPod of every indie music lover in the country and, eventually, a spot at number 7 in last year's triple j Hottest 100. They then became the darlings of the festival and pub circuits – selling out shows wherever they went on the back of Awkward and another uber-catchy tune Rocket Ship (you know the one - “ooh la la la, ooh la la la la”). As they head overseas to conquer America and Europe, the lads and lass have just whipped out a new single – the more mature but no less earwormy Wild Things which will no doubt propel them further into the stratosphere as will their debut album San Cisco being released November 23!

Its diversity makes it a traveller's paradise - and there are little known gems waiting to be discovered - boutique wineries, indigenous culture, gourmet food regions and secluded country escapes. More
