Sneaks - It's A Myth

Sneaks is a delightfully fresh project.  The brainchild of Washington, D.C.'s Eva Moolchan, it offers an intriguing blend of post punk, experimental pop, and hip hop.  And you can experience it all in less than 20 minutes!  Yes, you read that correctly.  It's A Myth contains ten tracks with an average run time of less that two minutes per track.  The beauty of that approach is each song concisely delivers the musical message, and then gets out of the way for the next song to audition its wares.  Unusual? Yes.  But remarkably entertaining and captivating.

As for the content, it is indie pop, electronic, synth pop and hip hop, and it is none of those things.  That description may make no sense to you in the abstract, but spin the album and you'll understand.  It won't take much of your time, and the rewards far exceed the time spent.

It's A Myth is out now via Merge Records.
