The video doubles as both a traveling visual narrative and a metaphor for the course of a lifetime: challenge after challenge, with rotating color schemes.

Produced by Mike Mogis, Ladder To The Sun is the first single from folky art-rock opus 'Pillar of Na' out August 31 via ANTI- Records. Saintseneca boldly crafts a fresh sound from time-worn elements of acoustic guitar and a voice ahead of the beat, against a backdrop of lo-fi retro-pop and psychedelia.

The video doubles as both a traveling visual narrative and a metaphor for the course of a lifetime: challenge after challenge, with rotating color schemes. The lead vocal has a shiver to it, a certain hijacked vibrato, that blends well with the retro-rock rhythm section. This feels like a classic that somehow only just fell to earth.

"Drinking free beer on the clock
What could be more free than us?" -- Saint Seneca

Saintseneca is the Indie Rock project of Zac Little, from Columbus, Ohio. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
