Beshken captured that contrast best on For Time Is The Longest Distance Between Two People ...

Sneaks makes synth-spoken-word great again
Main Artist covered in the blog (for charts): 
Sneaks
Facebook ID:

Genres (for charts): 
Avant-Indie
Region (for charts): 
Washington DC

On her 2nd full length release, DC-based Sneaks shows she is a creative tour-de-force. As the minimalist backing tracks drive the music under the oblique spoken-word metaphors, Sneaks somehow manages to make listeners forget the fact that her music has no melody, barely any harmony, a rhythm section consisting almost solely of drum tracks, and lyrics that often don’t even rhyme! There is some serious originality at work in this music, anyone able to take ...

Buzz Alert: Sneaks crafts minimalist punk on debut “Gymnastics”

Buzz Alert: Sneaks crafts minimalist punk on debut

Sneaks, the one-woman project of Eva Moolchan, produces music that seems mezmirzingly simple, but is wildly potent. Gymnastics, the latest LP from the artist, is a bass-driven/drum machine-backed work that could probably be loosely filed under "avant-punk." But while the album feels like it encapsulates part of the DIY aesthetic, Moolchan’s polished vocals–that alternate between conversational talk-singing and hushed whispers–add an eloquence to the tracks. While the instrumentation remains minimalist, her voice fills in the cracks, making you question why people even add guitars to things anyway. Listen to Sneaks streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni
