SNEAKPEEK hail from Echo Park, California and the four-pieces' sound sits somewhere between dream-pop beauty and grungy, garage-rock sludge.
Singer Dora Hiller quotes My Bloody Valentine and Smashing Pumpkins amongst her main influences and it's certainly apparent on their early demos. "Way Too Much" is a hazy ride swathed in reverb, like a shoegaze number slowed down ten times over. Heavy, fuzzy basslines at the forefront and a gorgeous wash of Dora's languid but gorgeous, melodic vocals.
"Western Sky" plays over distorted, scuzzy guitar riffs, a perfect summers evening track for helping you wash down a few cans of lager whilst having a BBQ with close friends, not the whole town though, they aren't going to appreciate it. The live demo "Walk All Over Me" is equally impressive, droning slabs of maelstrom guitar, it's slightly heavier than the studio stuff and the vocals more aggressive. The signs are all there, SNEAKPEEK are on the verge of something.
Speaking of which, the band are planning on self releasing a seven track EP at the end of the summer. I am waiting!
