“Local indie/experimental band Saint Solitaire is easily one of the hottest bands in the local scene right now. If you caught their stellar set at Concerts in the Park a few weeks back, you know what we mean. Their sound is fresh, blending clean, noodle-y guitar lines with danceable, groovy rhythms and electronic elements (synthesizers, samples, turntables, etc.), and they bring all this together live with an elevated level of energy that to be honest is missing from a lot of local bands’ sets these days.”
“On the surface, Saint Solitaire’s debut EP sounds like a pop-friendly indie-rock album packed with catchy hooks, but there is also no shortage of electronic sounds and drum machines to add nuance. Throughout, Barnhart mixes in guitars, synthesizers, drums and drum machines. The result is a sound with one foot rooted in rock and the other in electronic.”
“…[Saint Solitaire] has evolved into an intricately layered, indie-dance-pop collective, churning out dense, crafty beats that tingle the dance floor.”
"...Each project had a wildly different sound from the next, which gave Barnhart’s own solo project, Saint Solitaire, a diverse sound of its own. His debut EP, “Full Artistic Control,” is exactly as the title implies."
