Raw guitars, dreamy vocals and sublime harmonies grace today’s GIGsoup Track of the Day. The Ohio four-piece Saintseneca follow up last years impressive Dark Arc with new single Sleeper Hold, the first single to be taken from the bands forthcoming LP Such Things.
The new LP drops on the 9th October 2015. Moving away from the cinematic, linear quality of Dark Arc, the groups singer-songwriter Zac 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.”

“It’s definitely a new way of songs manifesting, and it feels like a step forward,” Little says. “I’m gonna push myself and try this thing I’ve wanted to try. I think it’s the best thing we’ve done so far, but then again I won’t write a song that I don’t think isn’t the best thing I’ve done. When I finish it I have to feel like it’s the best thing I’ve made. And if I don’t feel that way, it’s like, why bother?”
