First Listen: Saintseneca – Sleeper Hold

saintsenecaDeconstructing the lyrics to “Sleeper Hold” from Ohio’s Saintseneca is akin to meandering through the mind of the child. Questions are raised, pessimism runs rampant and threats are multiple.

The first single from the band’s forthcoming LP, Such Things, the sandbox philosophy of “Sleeper Hold” finds Zac Little and Maryn Jones trading verses that bookend the song’s harmony-laden choruses filled with river bottoms and ogres before coming together as one disparate voice that worms its way into your psyche.

To be released on 9 October via Anti-, Saintseneca will tour in support of Such Things. Full schedule here.

Stream “Sleeper Hold” below and pre-order Such Things on vinyl and CD here or in digital format via iTunes.
