Approved: Sneers

Sneers

Set to release their third album – ‘Heaven Will Rescue Us, We’re The Scum, We’re In The Sun’ – this Friday, Italian duo Sneers are currently in the middle of a UK tour.

Their distinctive sound is made up of multiple layers. Maria Blaankart croaks and shakes her vocals out of her throat, while drawing heavily reverbed sounds out of her guitar. Behind her, drummer Leonardo Oreste lays down often sparse percussion, which builds an atmospheric tone. For four tracks on the new album, Swans’ Kristof Hahn also joins them on pedal steel guitar.

The tour dates continue in Leicester tonight at The Soundhouse, making their way through various towns until they finish up at the Rough Trade East Recommends night in London on 26 Sep.
