Sneaks – Highway Hypnosis

MERGE RECORDS

  • £17.99


 

Sneaks, a.k.a. Eva Moolchan, emerges from the male-dominated Baltimore-Washington punk scene, joining the resistance forged by queer black feminists who create, explore, empower, conquer, and play bass.

Recorded at New York’s Silent Barn in 2017, Highway Hypnosis was co-produced by Carlos Hernandez (of Ava Luna), Tony Seltzer (Princess Nokia), and Eva Moolchan herself.

Using little more than a bass guitar, drum machine and sampler, Highway Hypnosis jumps genre-trains between stripped-down hip-hop, snow-burning r&b, skeletal post-punk, synth-pop sass-hits and playful electronica. With a brat-lipped impassion and repetition-heavy lyrical hooks, Moolchan's vocals are un-showy and cool, but never stand-offish.

“It’s a bizarre approach to post-punk, but the sheer immediacy will intrigue and confound you. And then make you dance” - Newsweek
