Indie pop four-piece San Cisco have been making themselves known in their native Australia (and at last year’s CMJ Marathon) but have now crossed international borders with their cover of Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky” off their recent full-length, Random Access Memories. San Cisco stopped by triple j Radio and added their own mix to the station’s “Like a Version” series.
“Get Lucky” covers have been popping up all over the internet as if Daft Punk themselves were launching them with a t-shirt gun, and we just keep watching, whether we want a t-shirt or not. Among the endless redos lies attempts most notably from Daughter, the Stepkids, and especially this scintillating banjo cover. Despite all the competition, San Cisco have risen above the rest by cleverly mashing up their cover with N.E.R.D.‘s “Hypnotise U” in an awesomely smooth transition. Watch San Cisco lose their “versionity” and play the title track off their newest EP, Beach below.
