Saintseneca Premiere “Sleeper Hold” Video

Under The Radar is premiering a new video from Saintseneca. The clip is for the band’s song “Sleeper Hold” from their recent release Such Things. The song features the singer-songwriterZac Little along with co singer Maryn Jones, perfectly contrasting the band’s philosophical explorations with some perfectly realized power pop complete with crunching chords and a soaring anthemic chorus, all of which NPR Music described as “a jangly, buoyant foot-stomper of a philosophical missive.”
The accompanying video features some rather dramatic and evocative animation by Sara Drake depicting an angel neglecting a terrible accident and instead embarking on a jaunt around town.
“Animation felt like good medium to accompany this song,” Little says. “Cartoons have a legacy of accessibility. That’s what this song is – abstract and esoteric ideas, with a conventional pop motif as the mechanism of delivery. It is an honor to have the very talented Sara Drake work with us on this video.” Watch here: Under The Radar
