Upon listening to Stan “Seneko” Olshefski for the first time, I immediately thought to myself, “He sounds a lot like renowned English musician and brilliant songwriter Elvis Costello.”
To me, it’s especially evident on the opening track (Callin’ of the Cause) of Seneko’s recently released, five-song EP, SoulNumbers, his third EP in the past four years.
I’m not sure if it’s Seneko’s lyrics/voice or the musical vibe that evokes Costello’s classically melodic tone. But that same cool, casual sound continues with tracks like Jenny’s with Irene and doesn’t from there with tunes such as Lost On Me and The Devil You Don’t Know.
I would go as far saying that Seneko sounds a little bit like the band Squeeze.
The New Canaan, Connecticut, resident has been described as “Think country meets Radiohead” by Wail Music Magazine and featured in the Huffington Post, who wrote, “Seneko brings to mind the whimsey of the Gin Blossoms.”
In September 2016, he debuted his self-titled EP, Seneko. Bolstered by his Indie-Pop passion, the five-song collective centers around love. And what better subject is there to devote to the essence of the album?
