Saintseneca’s songs crackle and buzz with an energy that would benefit many similar indie folk-rock bands. The Columbus, Ohio, group—helmed by singer/songwriter Zac Little—has felt like it’s been on the verge of bigger things for a while now, thanks to 2014’s Dark Arc and 2015’s Such Things. But the band’s new album, Pillar of Na, may be their best yet. It’s warm, strummy, restless, and relentlessly catchy, with one foot planted in the world of elegant pop-rock and the other rooted in punk ethos. It’s well worth a listen, if for no other reason than Little’s stated goal: “I told [producer] Mike Mogis I wanted Violent Femmes meets the new Blade Runner soundtrack,” he explains in the band’s bio. “I’m looking for the intersection between Kendrick Lamar and the Fairport Convention.” Was he successful? That’s for your ears to decide.
