Song of the Day: San Cisco – Awkward

‘Awk talk.’ We all know it. We all do it (some less than others). You know – it’s when you’re in a conversation or a relationship or a meeting and things… just… don’t… quite flow. There is good news about ‘awk talk’ and all things ‘awkward’ though: while we all try to minimize it in our daily lives, there’s no reason we can’t enjoy it in musical form.

Now, thanks to San Cisco, a young Australian indie band, we can all rock out to the inevitable awkwardness we cringe at daily through our headphones. The band targets the most intense type of awkwardness – that experienced on a first date – in their new single, aptly titled, well, ‘Awkward.’

The song is a poppy duet with one of those great choruses that is nothing but ‘doodoo daadaa’ sounds. Clutch lines include descriptions of the young woman having her keys ready at the gate to make a quick escape, after which her male counterpart inquires why she hasn’t called back because ‘he’s been calling her for days’… to which the girl counters with a request for him to stop stalking her. Calling, stalking; texting, stexting – it’s a thin thin line to be sure.

Does that thin line make for awkward? You betcha. But, since none of us are the guilty actors on this failed first date, there’s no reason not to keep listening. Just make sure you look where you’re going when you’re rocking out to this song – otherwise you could make for an ‘awk walk’ next time you’re grooving around town.
