Columbus folk-punk quintet Saintseneca includes All Dogs/Yowler leader Maryn Jones and the Sidekicks’ Steve Ciolek as members, but they’re very much Zac Little’s band. They’ve got a new album called Such Things, their first for relatively big indie Anti-, coming out in a couple of weeks, and we’ve already posted their songs “Sleeper Hold” and “River.” And now, via Paste, we get to hear “Bad Ideas,” a tuneful indie-pop song with a big of that lackadaisical Pavement looseness to it. Says Little: “With ‘Bad Ideas’ we wanted to make the song with the least amount of elements. Musically we were exploring the power of minimalism and the riff.” Check it out below.
Such Things is out 10/9 on Anti-. Check out our interview with Little.
