Audio: Sinkane 'Jeeper Creeper'


Sudanese-born Ahmed Gallab aka Sinkane currently serves as the multi-instumentalists in indie outfit Yeasayer. He's previously donned the stage with the likes of Caribou, Of Montreal and Born Ruffians (major cred, dude), as well as held down the decks for an excellent installment of Africa In Your Earbuds.

'Jeeper Creeper,' a cut off his upcoming Mars LP, plays likes an astral pop jam —highlighted by a trot-pace bass groove, psychedelic guitar and synth riffs, and Sinkane's near-whisper singing.
