With the release of the previous single “Human Relations”, the band were confident they might achieve a measure of success in Ireland (and they did, the single was played heavily on Today FM and many of the regional stations) but nothing prepared them for the success the band have experienced in China.
After an eagle eyed Chinese YouTube viewer tweeted about the song”s video it was posted on the Chinese equivalent of YouTube, where it rose to the number four spot in the MTV online chart, beating off the likes of Adele and Madonna and sticking around long enough to clock up 375000 hits and counting.
We're delighted to be able to report that Truth About Kerry, the Stana Katic (you'll know her from NBC's funky crime drama Castle) movie which features three tracks from Senakah's debut album Sweeter Than Bourbon – “No Angel”, “Playing Fair” and “Clarity” – has now been released on DVD and is featured in Amazon's Hot New Releases section. Keep an eye out for it in your favourite neighbourhood video emporium.
We are delighted and honoured to announce that “Sinking” from our new forthcoming album Human Relations has been chosen to be the theme music for The Media Show, a new media program on RTE Radio 1 starting April 14th and presented by Brenda Power and Produced by Helen Shaw.
Irish dates confirmed in May and June for the release of our second single from Human Relations. Shows confirmed for Limerick, Dublin, Galway with more dates coming soon.
There's a special Irish version of the single “Human Relations” available on the Rí-Rá le Hector CD, available free with Foinse/Irish Independent today in any Supervalu/Centra.

Ray Foley and JP have been incredibly supportive since “Human Relations” was released and have played the song over and over. We'll be heading in to the Today FM studios on Thursday 16th February to give them a very special unplugged rendition of the song and a mystery cover version. So much of a mystery in fact that we haven't even made up our minds about it yet. Be sure to tune in to the show between 12.00 and 2.30 in the afternoon. You can text your support to (083) 4100 102.
We were already pretty stoked about getting to Dublin, Limerick, Cork and Galway as part of the tour to promote “Human Relations” but we're extra pleased to announce that we'll be playing Auntie Annie's in Belfast on Thursday 23rd February with The Flaws. That should be a great night as they're an amazing live band too. If you're in the North, get yourself along there.
Rick O'Shea has made “Human Relations” his single of the week for the week commencing Monday, February 6th and the song is getting played every day on his 2FM show which goes out between 2.00 and 4.00 in the afternoon. We'd like to say a big thanks to Rick for the support. It's nice to feel the love. You can let him know you love the song too by texting 51552 and asking him to keep playing it.
Well, we've had to get a little creative with the spelling of the band's name as we ran into a little clash of trade marks in the US. It looks different but it sounds exactly the same and we're exactly the same band you always loved. You did, didn't you?
Human Relations, the first single to be released from our up and coming second album, will be released in Ireland on February 17th. You'll be able to buy it on iTunes and be sure to request it on your favourite radio show. It's a monster, we think you're gonna love it!
The video for Human Relations, starring and written by Ben Morrison of MTV's Punk'd, is online now. We're super excited to hear what you all think of it so get commenting. Check it out on the Senakah YouTube channel.
Help us launch our forthcoming single by coming along to one of our launch gigs. We're in the Workman's Club on Dublin's Wellington Quay on Thursday February 16th and we'll be wetting the new single's head in Limerick with a gig in Dolan's Warehouse on Friday February 17th. We'll be hoping to see all our old friends out for the night.

Formed in late 2006 in Limerick City, Senakah started writing songs for their debut album Sweeter Than Bourbon, which was released in 2008 to critical acclaim and saw two of their singles enter the Irish charts. 'Smile' making the top 30 and 'Clarity' reaching no.19. Following several Irish mini tours, including sharing stage time with established Irish acts such as Fred, Republic of Lose, The Walls, and Delorentos, the band were invited to the US by an American promoter.
Over the next three years they played several tours there, racking up well over 300 shows and taking in over 40 states, including legendary venues such as the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood and playing with a few musical giants along the way such as Arrested Development and Bernie Worrell (Talking Heads and Parliament Funkadelic). In 2011 the band returned home for some much needed rest and most importantly, to write and record their second album. Though many of the songs had been written on the road, they spent the next 12 months working on the remainder, while also taking in short tours of Ireland, the UK and Scandinavia.
2013 was a big year for the Senakah which saw them release their long awaited second album, Human Relations. Produced by Cranberries guitarist, Noel Hogan, and engineered by Owen Lewis, Human Relations is a striking blend of guitar laden melodic pop and modern rock. The album was preceded by its namesake first single 'HumanRelations', which saw huge success on both the national airwaves and on YouTube. A second single 'Ugly' proved to be another hit on the web, racking up over 200,000 views. Senakah's material has since enjoyed numerous placements on Irish national television and radio, including several placements on The Late Late Show and The Media Show on RTÉ Radio.
The bands hard work further paid off with a recently endorsement from audio equipment giants Peavey and the news that they've just been picked up by Kanoon Records in Germany, with a planned large scale release coming this summer along with a European tour.
