Seneca “Sweeter Than Bourbon”

A full-length that should have been an EP, this is a bit of a mess. You can sense passion in the songs, but you’re not sure why it’s there sometimes.
“Playing Fair” is a fair song. The chorus sounds like Sweetheart mixed with Guided by Voices. Or Mike Rutherford. It’s a great song to make out to.
“Clarity” is very unclear. We need these falsettos why? It’s flat right out of the gate. “Smile” is the same song. (It’s not, really, but it sounds the same.) The music is straight out of an overproduced U2 album.
Maybe they’ll do better next time.
