SAINTSENECA Debut At Stereogum

The band Saintseneca will unveil their first video today via Stereogum. The group's national debut features a never before heard song “Uppercutter” from their Anti- full length debut album Dark Arc which arrives in stores March of 2014.

The beautifully impressionistic video utilizes an assortment of multicolored patterns and textures projected across the band as their darkly engaging post punk-folk anthem “Uppercutter” plays.

Saintseneca is led by singer-songwriter and multi instrumentalist Zac Little who originally hails from rural Appalachia. Following in the footsteps of heartland bands who have sought to twist the music of the old weird America into new shapes – from the Violent Femmes to Neutral Milk Hotel – Saintseneca perform songs that sound both familiar and uniquely original. The group utilizes a wide range of acoustic instrumentation (balalaika, mandolin, dulcimer, Turkish Baglama, floor percussion) with more contemporary elements such as synthesizers and electric guitars to create a seamless blend of soaring vocals and vibrant post-punk energy.

Saintseneca will be playing a series of North American dates this fall.
