For a few years after forming in 2005 The Sneaks defined alt-rock in New Zealand by writing a bunch of awesome songs detailing the banalities of life, basically: getting laid, not getting laid, getting laid by someone from the North Shore, being lame, being a scenester, and - most importantly - witnessing one's girlfriend turn into zombie.
They then disappeared into a smoky haze of touring internationally in other bands, and we mourned.
BUT THEY ARE BACK FOR THIS ONE TIME ONLY AND WE ARE REALLY LUCKY.
The Sneaks will be supported by awesome local acts, Sherpa and HDSPNS and by a solo set from American artist Hidden Pictures.
About The Sneaks: UK-based indie pop three piece made up of nerdy audio engineering types. Originally from Auckland. Won a bNET for Most Promising Act (2005).
With their previous releases 'I'm Sparklers' and 'Pretty Cool Optical Illusions' earning them a Groove Guide album of the week, two number ones on the bFM Top Ten, a Roundhead Studios Live In Session, opening slots for Darwin Deez, The Clean and a noteworthy performance at the 2012 Auckland Laneway Festival, Sherpa are set to paint the year in a psychedelic haze.. - Amplifier
