It’s been since November of 2017, when we had the chance to review a song from the gang in SAINTSENECA. Last time we’d reviewed their single ‘Moon Barks At The Dog’ and we dug it lots. We’d said it “comes at us from all sides, not doing its best to leave us alone. It’s just a slow walk, to that great walk through the park.
And this time for ‘Frostbiter’, it’s the same ol’ same ol’. The band is superb with quintessential acrobatic skillz to entice and pull at the strings near our hearts. Taming the beast within our thoughts, and then giving it a near push towards the vastness of what human interactions in this realm, could mean.
Newly announced album ‘Pillar Of Na’ should be a doozy, for sure.
“I think of this song as a big tree trunk in the woods where people carve their messages – initials, jokes, ‘I love you’ hearts… It is a work of accumulation. A little space absorbing traces of its environment over time. Every mark corresponds to a different story. Some of them are mine. Some belong to others, yet feel all too familiar.”
Album drops August 31st.
