“an anthem for rebels and rule breakers everywhere.” — NYLON
“…Sneakout exhibits a rowdier side of Fleming’s stylistic repertoire.” — Impose Magazine
Sneakout’s Robert Fleming crafts upbeat, electro-tinged indie-pop with a fun and mischievous vibe, so it’s only fitting that his new video for “The Art Of Hanging On” would feature drinking, partying, and general rowdiness. The twist is in the crew of characters he’s cast: a grandfather and his buddies, eager to teach one lucky grandson how to have a good time. Directed by Andrew Hines, who’s shot videos for A$AP Ferg & The Head and The Heart.
Shedding his previous moniker Victory — whose tracks were featured in national ad campaigns for Cadillac and iPhone & Burberry, as well as HBO’s Girls— Fleming chose to call his new project Sneakout, a name that embodies his values of living in the moment and not taking life too seriously. As an introduction to Sneakout, he put together the Letting Go Mixtape, which features brand new tracks alongside reworkings of some old Victory favorites. You can stream the full mixtape via Soundcloud.
Letting Go Mixtape Track Listing:
1. The Art of Hanging On

Victory is the music project of LA artist Robert Fleming, who crafts sun-bleached rock & roll with a pop edge. His debut LP, Victory Is Music, was released earlier this year, and he followed it up last week with his Soothing Me So EP. The EP contains the album version of the single, two brand new remixes, and a special cover track.
Now, check out house/dance producers Enso (who have done remixes for Sleigh Bells, Icky Blossoms, etc.) who’s remixed his single “Soothing Me So,” turning it into a dancefloor banger.

Victory’s music is sun-bleached rock ‘n’ roll with a pop edge. Set on a foundation of buzzing guitars, fuzzed-out bass, and archaic drum machines, his howling vocal licks and pop hooks make for songs that are energetic and playful, but still rooted in ’60s-era rock. His latest LP, Victory Is Music, explores a range of styles & influences, featuring everything from doo woo-inspired tunes to dancefloor bangers.
