“Happy Alone” is the new video from celebrated young band Saintseneca. The clip is an imaginative study of alienation and isolation. The song is from the band’s forthcoming album Dark Arc, out on March 28.
Saintseneca is led by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Zac Little who originally hails from rural Appalachia. Following in the footsteps of heartland bands who have sought to twist the music of the old weird America into new shapes – from the Violent Femmes to Neutral Milk Hotel – Saintseneca perform songs that sound both familiar and uniquely original. The group utilizes a wide range of acoustic instrumentation with more contemporary elements such as synthesizers and electric guitars to create a seamless blend of soaring vocals and vibrant post-punk energy.

Combining the talents of brothers Lachlan (guitar and vocals) and Leigh Ewbank (drums) as well as Ali Edmonds (bass) Damn Terran have rightfully earned a reputation for being one of Melbourne’s most incendiary live bands.
‘Rational Economic Man’ is four minutes of addictive tension and release. Anger and control play out meticulously in staccato chords, stop/start rhythms and Ewbank’s melodic yet virulent vocals.
To capture Rational Economic Man’s raucous glory, Damn Terran invited dedicated fans and curious punters to a Melbourne warehouse for the filming of its accompanying video clip. The entire clip was shot using head-cameras worn by the band and members of the audience, resulting in a realistic view of both band and fan alike.
“New Orleans… 1951… a bar full of genius players – double dealing, sweet talking players with more on their mind than numbers – converge where the hustlers lay on the sugar thicker than the cheap wine that flows in the back rooms of the gambling halls. Eyes shift to the white girl who is obviously lost, or from out of town. And as soon as the timpani plays and she grabs the microphone, her voice moves from pariah to Princess of the Pleasure Dome. A coincidence? No, not really…”
‘Back It Up’ is the sound of swapped glances across a crowded dancefloor. It’s the sound of a party that begins late and carries on until the sun rises. It’s a song about dancing, flirting and a declaration of independence. With her debut single, Caro Emerald announces herself with the sort of sassy, whipsmart pop that will have the likes of Lily Allen and Mark Ronson pricking up their ears. Her smouldering vocals update the classic Americano sound with a contemporary sheen and suggestive lyrics over a melting pot of sounds and influences – yet the sound is entirely, inimitably that of an exciting new artist.
