Saintseneca's Dark Arc Now Playing On NPR's First Listen

Appalachian strum meets post punk stomp, complete with ghostly harmonies and anthemic melodies, in the music of new ANTI- Records signing Saintseneca. Anchored by front man Zac Little’s soulful bray and introspective poetics, Saintseneca’s debut, Dark Arc will be available everywhere on April 1. In the meantime you can hear it in its entirety on NPR’s First Listen http://www.npr.org/2014/03/23/291406580/first-listen-saintseneca-dark-arc

It’s been an exciting year for Columbus, Ohio’s Saintseneca, with non-stop touring and a triumphant run of SXSW gigs. Their lead in single, “Happy Alone,” has received great reviews and picked up airplay on influential stations like WXPN in Philadelphia, WFUV in NYC, KUTX in Austin and Sirius XM’s The Loft among others.

Critics are already chiming in. Rolling Stone called the new album “a gem”; the Kansas City Star called their music “keenly intelligent and rapturously beautiful”; while in a recent show review, Time Out Chicago praised the band’s “distinctive voice that stands out amid the hordes of indie folk bands in existence.”
