Short, sharp, and glistening sweet, SNEEZE ATTACK's sugar infusion is the perfect soundtrack for Spring drifting into Summer, short sleeves and drinking beer with your beau on the front porch. A girl group vibe filtered through fuzz, Sneeze Attack's Maxwell LP recalls 90s South City singles, Sacramento's legendary Tiger Trap, and contemporary twee-rockers Bent Shapes. Sneeze Attack’s debut is twenty minutes of compact pop, including cover of songs by Head and Cub.
Sneeze Attack formed in 2012 when Dino met Hans. The two started writing songs and roped in their friend Patrick for some shows and a single, Aurora. After gigging around with Dino's pet bunny and other furry friends, they hit the studio with Chris Woodhouse behind the board, Christine Shelly on drums, and Charles Albright on lead guitar.
Maxwell is available on Pleasant Screams Records as a limited vinyl pressing of 500.
"This band exists in the little-visited place were pop punk, twee rock, and fuzzed-out garage intersect. And it's all done with a nod to Phil Spector-style '60s rock. If you could imagine a lo-fi (the) Muffs with cranked up reverb, you might get a little close to the mark. This is a really fun album, and it somehow finds a way to transcend bedroom jams and basement party band simultaneously. The hooks are both catchy and dreamy. I want this album on while I lay in bed and stare at the ceiling, but I also wanna sing along. What a conundrum! Gets better every time you listen to it" MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL
"Did you ever wish the Ramones had recorded a raw, garage rock record with a punk rock woman singing catchy pop songs? If you didn’t, you should have. Sneeze Attack has recorded just such a record and once you listen, you can’t help but flip the record back over and listen again. Recommended if you like: guitars, melodies, backbeats, and fun" RAZORCAKE (Chad Williams)
