Columbus, Ohio band Saintseneca is set to release its Anti- debut, Dark Arc, April 1. The stomptastic folk act grew out of frontman Zac Little’s Appalachian upbringing and first garnered attention following the release of the band’s first record, Last, in 2011.
The A.V. Club has the premiere for the band’s brand new video for “Happy Alone.” According to Little, the love song is a “meditation on doom” and attempts to remind the world that “there is joy in doom and doom in joy.”
The band’s upcoming tour dates are below as well. Dark Arc is available for pre-order now.
