Seneko: '69 Camaro
(Torrez Music Group / 22 October 2021)
Country, pop rock with a retro feel, fuelled by solid musicianship - that's the appeal of '69 Camaro, the new release from Connecticut based Seneko.
Seneko is the brainchild of vocalist/songwriter Stan Olshefski. He talks about the new album, a departure from his debut acoustic EP, in a release. "I really wanted to make something fresh and have always wanted to do a guitar driven Rock record - So I did. The downtime during the pandemic gave me an opportunity to write a lot, so there was plenty to choose from."
The songs each tell a story, and the threads of Americana and alt rock weave in and out of each other musically through the title track.
No Goin' Back has a rockabilly heartbeat. Olshefski's vocals perfectly suit the song, a languid melody against a classic country train beat. Writing On The Wall goes full throttle country-rock, with a straight ahead groove and a tale of love that shouldn't have happened.
As a songwriter, he's got a talent for earworm hooks, and creating just the right mood for each song. It's Americana with a sense of polish that doesn't take away its rawness of expression.
