Sneaks

Sneaks

Late for detention

Wanna be amphibian

Fusion over fission

Door to door

Knees on the floor

Seashells by the seashore

Like most of Sneaks’ music, “Future” is in constant gyroscopic movement—thumping rhythm cutting around deep bass, spoken-word patterns somersaulting through image fragments, childhood nostalgia, and cryptic wordplay. The song is a fitting culmination for It’s a Myth, Sneaks’ second album due March 31, 2017, on Merge Records.

With little more than a bass, drum machine, and deadpan vocals, Sneaks, a.k.a. Eva Moolchan, makes minimalist music that takes up space—something she herself has made a point of doing in the male-heavy Washington, D.C., DIY punk scene that has been her home. Moolchan’s compelling songwriting, along with the fervid energy of her shows, prompted breakout D.C. label Sister Polygon to release her 2015 debut Gymnastics, which Merge reissued in September 2016.
