Melodic, Angular, Intense, Energetic, Evocative
SENECA are a visceral new Alternative Rock band from Exeter, UK. Blending the sweet with the sour, the band brings both tension and angularity without compromising their sense of melody or dynamic. Bearing a broad range of influences from the underground scene and seamlessly blending them with more accessible styles of rock, they’re crafting themselves the beginnings of a sound that feels in equal part complex and unconventional as it does accessible.
Since playing their first show at Oxjam Exeter 2019, the Alt/Math Rock quintet have consistently upped the raw energy every performance. Already in their short-time as a gigging band they’ve played legendary underground venues, The Cobblestones (Bridgewater) and Exeter Cavern multiple times while also performing at Bloodstock Metal 2 The Masses Devon and Cornwall 2020.
On 19th July 2020 the band debut with a chaotic and cathartic single, “The Ventriloquist” which was met with a overwhelmingly positive response in the local music sphere. The follow-up single “Exhale, Sigher” was released on the 15th January this year, bringing back both the technical instrumental interplay and cryptic lyricism, while also ramping up both the abrasivity and the melodics to construct a track even more audacious than its predecessor.
