They’re from Australia and have been around a few years, but I’d never heard of Sneaky Sound System, until that is, I caught a friend’s post on Facebook for the music video “I Love It.” I was instantly struck by lead singer Miss Connie’s (Connie Mitchell) sultry, evocative and playful vocals. The group’s sound is similar to Duran Duran with a tiny twist of Dee Lite that is long lasting and timeless. “I Love It” is an instant classic.
Little did we know, Sneaky Sound System have achieved double platinum status in Australia, achieving four number one singles and two ARIA Awards. I am absolutely enthralled with this band and am amazed no one has picked them up here stateside. They did recently play a New York date in March, then headed to the Winter Music Conference for a little networking. I’d love to see what happens with this group and hope they something happens for them here. I think they’re genius!
