The Sneaks are here – a free show & an MP3

The Sneaks

The Sneaks are from New Zealand, though their base of operations seem to be out of London these days. They are here. They flew in before the volcano started causing problems for everyone and are playing a free show tonight (4/19) at Bruar Falls. While you can definitely hear some of the classic New Zealand/Flying Nun sound in their music, they’ve also got some Britpop in there too (The Jam/Blur) — which is to say pretty catchy stuff. You can download the band’s new single “Chase the Tear” at the top of this post. Warning: contains whistling.

Actually, there are two Kiwi bands on the bill. Aukland’s folky Panther and the Zoo play an early set at 7PM. (They sound a little like Little Joy to these ears.) And if you get there earlier than that, I’m told there’s free grilled things in the back patio, weather permitting. Also playing the show tonight are tuneful indie pop band Darlings, psychobilly-ish Cybelle Blood (feat. members of Coasting and Dream Diary), and Night Reports.
