After unexpectedly emerging from the DIY circuit in Columbus, Ohio a couple of years ago, Saintseneca has blown us away with their passion for sounds and textures – layering folk instrumentation, adding a punk finish. With the release of their second album, Dark Arc, the rising indie-band has earned increasing national interest. Produced by Bright Eyes guitarist Mike Mogis, Dark Arc dropped in April 2014 on ANTI-, home to other big names like Dr Dog, Bob Mould and Elliott Smith.

Lead man Zac Little offers introspective lyrics and his detuned guitar lends to foreboding overtones in songs like “Blood Bath” and “Uppercutter.” Dulcimers and banjos give Saintseneca the Appalachian undertones that we have come to love so much. Throw some electric instrumentation and synth into the mix and you have the post-modern pop, acoustic indie rock, foot stomping folk-punk that is Saintseneca. We are so excited to present Saintseneca next weekend at the Cedar Cultural Center, on Saturday, June 14.  Listen to their single “Uppercutter” below:
