Saintseneca Such Things on LP + Download
Saintseneca's powerful new album Such Things is the band's most cohesive, catchy and accessible output, and a work that solidifies the group's singer and songwriter Zac Little's status as one of modern indie music's most thoughtful and talented artists. First single, "Sleeper Hold" is a pulsating and infectious rock song that utilizes elements of punk, folk and straight up rock and roll, all centered around a soaring and beautifully anthemic chorus.
Such Things is the anticipated follow up to Saintseneca's acclaimed 2014 album Dark Arc. Moving away from the cinematic, linear quality of its predecessor, Little sought even higher ground for the new songs, and to incorporate the synapses and charges of his fellow members. "I was pushing myself with Such Things to try to explore the pop motif further, to try to use and bend that formula of having a groove, a beat, locking in and using that as scaffolding to build a song," he says. "And even though it oftentimes might seem like this singular vision, at the core my creative strategy for the band is one that inherently involves other people. I think the best work I'll make involves working that way."'
Those disparate pieces and parts have come together, like so many molecules, to form a solid rock object called Such Things. You can hold it in your hands and hear it in your head, this culmination of tiny, beautiful moments and fluctuations of energy and information, compressed and etched into an LP sleeve and eternity and all tied up in a rock and roll record.
