“It’s about not finding peace until you perish,” Brian ‘Sene’ Marc explains of “The Stoned” the track from the Brooklyn-based Saint Ballantine. “Everyone is ready to cast a stone. We are far from perfect and so we are the stoned.”
It’s a heady concept, but there’s a decided thoughtfulness to the track, whose piano stabs and hypnotic, harmonized vocals make it feel like a would-be big-house banger, but slowed down considerably for a more reflective tone.
The duo, also including Andrew Thomas Reid, who jokingly call their music”Gangsta Indie Rock”, are the latest product of the Clubhouse, a Brooklyn Victorian-style mansion that has played host to dozens of musicians and artists over the past few years. Find more from them here.
