Debut album 'Gymnastics' to be re-issued on November 11th...

Washington D.C. artist Sneaks' debut album 'Gymnastics' seemed to bowl over everyone who heard it.

Literally packed with ideas, the LP lasts a mere 14 minutes but fuses skeletal post-punk with more pop melodies that you could shake your bootie to.

Merge have stepped in for a full re-issue, with 'Gymnastics' set to hit record racks all over again from November 11th.

Addictive album cut 'Tough Luck' has received the visual treatment, with director Jamie Wolfe crafting a cool-as-hell animated clip.

He explains: "The video is built out of a series of vignettes, each directly playing off the repetition and rhythm in Eva’s beats. Each frame is hand-painted in sumi ink, and then colored digitally. At the beginning, I listened to the song on repeat, and painted whatever came to mind. Tons of morphy dancing bodies and gestural, abstracting forms. I animated my favourites."

Tune in below.
