Sneaks Moves Forward on ‘Hair Slick Back’
Sneaks is the musical project of D.C.-based multi-instrumentalist Eva Moolchan. Armed with little more than a bass, drum machine and a distinct, crackling deadpan, she's a one-woman post-punk band, not to mention a master of minimalism; most of her songs clock in at two minutes or less. It didn't take long for the Grand Poobahs of the Capital's DIY scene to take notice; Sneaks' debut album, 2015's Gymnastics, arrived via Priests' Sister Polygon label. She eventually signed with Merge, who reissued the LP last fall.
Two years after Gymnastics, Moolchan is back with the follow-up, titled It's a Myth. The new full-length was recorded alongside Jonah Takagi and Ex Hex's Mary Timony, and while it's just as brisk as the last record (10 songs in 18 minutes), it also reflects plenty of growth, as well as a swell in confidence. Check out the album's latest single, "Hair Slick Back," below, then scroll down to check out the album artwork and track list, as well as Sneaks' upcoming tour dates (the bulk of which are alongside Downtown Boys).
Sneaks' It's a Myth LP arrives March 31st via Merge. Pre-order it here.
