Interview with SneakPeek
We featured female-fronted lo-fi/garage/grunge/psych band SneakPeek about a fortnight ago, and we couldn't resist asking the enigmatic bunch a few questions.
I Know That I'm Right: Tell us about the band. Who are the members, and who plays what instruments?
Dora Hiller - Bass, Vocals
Aric Bohn - Guitar
Aaron Haack - Drums
Mike Motz - Guitar
How did you guys come up with the band name?
We had a hard time deciding on a name. We wanted to be Wishlist, but that was taken, so we went with the next best thing we could think of, SNEAKPEEK.
How did you meet and end up playing together?
Dora and Aric are a couple who live together in Echo Park. Aric, Aaron and Mike were in a band in high school called the Mutes.
Talk about your musical influences.
Our musical influences include Singapore Sling, Smashing Pumpkins, Galaxie 500, My Bloody Valentine, and Innocence Mission.

What are your hopes for the near future?
Our EP release date will be announced soon! In the meantime we will just keep playing shows around Los Angeles.
