When last we checked in with Saintseneca, the Ohio four-piece was riding high on the tail of Dark Arc. The band’s second album found them incorporating rousing melodies with their electric folk, sounding like a (much) darker version of the Lumineers. They stopped by our Studio 1A for a fiery live performance, perfectly showing off their roots as a house-party DIY band.
Fast-forward a few months and Saintseneca is still on the road, but they’re showing off a new side of their sound. It’s easy to hear the folk/rock influences of Bright Eyes or Nick Cave, but on a new single, Saintseneca points their arrow to one of our hometown favorites: Lucinda Williams. Their cover of “Passionate Kisses” highlights the original’s romanticism, proving its a song worthy of any generation.
