There’s a certain darkness to the Mid-West.
A vast, sprawling area of the United States, the Mid-West is a place to get lost in, a place to be confronted by yourself.
Hailing from Ohio, Saint Seneca know a thing or two about this. Now signed to ANTI- (which makes them labelmates with Tom Waits, doncha know) the band have a sound which matches sparsity of arrangement to a visceral touch.
Rooted in the noir climes of Americana, the band’s new album ‘Dark Arc’ was overseen by Mike Mogis – noted for his work with Bright Eyes.
Finding light in darkness and darkness in light, Saint Seneca know how to draw you in and leave you stranded.
New cut ‘Blood Bath’ is dipped in charming folk instrumentation but – as the title suggests – there’s more going on here than meets the eye.
