Saintseneca Unveil 'Such Things' for Anti-
Earlier this year, Anti- signees Saintseneca swung by the Exclaim! office to perform a song from 2014's Dark Arc. Now, a few months later, the Ohio group have a new album on the way. Such Things is due out on October 9.

The album is apparently a sonic shift from Dark Arc. Singer-songwriter Zac Little said in a statement, "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. 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."

Such Things consists of a fairly generous 15 tracks, although some of them are very short; "///" is just six seconds long and "The All Full On" is a little more than half a minute.

At the bottom of this page, hear the sweetly stomping folk rock number "Sleeper Hold," which is a duet from Little and fellow vocalist Maryn Jones. If you're suitably impressed, the album is available to pre-order here.
