“I write all the songs that I want to write,” says Saintseneca‘s Zac Little as we’re walking around on the Reading Viaduct, “so why would I need another band?” While many of his bandmates moonlight in other projects — All Dogs, Yowler, The Sidekicks, to name a few, these are not unknown bands in the slightest — Zac feels fulfilled in one sphere. One whole cloth.

It’s a philosophy that Zac takes into his songwriting, as well. Anything can be profound, everything is valuable in the right light. A ...
