Label: Nice Swan Records
Released: 11th March 2022
By logic alone, Sprints shouldn’t stand out like this.
Post-punky riffs, vocal delivery that sometimes skirts close to Now That’s What They Call Sprechgesang Vol. 2 – by simple two plus two maths, they’re a band that sail on the prevailing wind. And yet levelling any of that at the Irish newcomers would be painfully unfair. Why? Attitude.
What other bands do with a carefully posed grab for cool credentials, Sprints charge at with raw, righteous feelings. Always sounding one sharp tug of coming off the chain, ‘A Modern Job’ is an EP made by the primal force that propels it forward.
