Today Sprints’ return with the second single to be lifted from the highly anticipated debut EP of the same, that is set for release next year. ‘Manifesto’ is the post-punk band’s best single to date as they’ve refined the more industrial elements of their sound and head into a more tense yet exhilarating chapter.


‘Manifesto’ is the latest single to be released from the rapidly growing Dublin 4 piece, and further cements their place as one of Ireland’s most exciting new acts. Sonically, Sprints sound like an arena-slaying band who could bring their darkly theatrical performances to the biggest stages. Daniel Fox of Girl Band has been working with them since their inception in early 2020 and is credited as producer for each track on this beautifully crafted EP. The full track listing for the EP is as follows: 1. Manifesto 2. Drones
3. Swimming 4. Ashley
.

The band manifested their relationship with Daniel Fox after being fans of the noise, garage and punk scene in Dublin for years, before edging their way in with brilliant song writing.

Karla Chubb, lead singer and songwriter, started bedroom singing and song writing in her late teens. By her early 20’s Karla had met current bandmates Colm O’Reilly (guitar) and Jack Callan (drums) and they had a short-lived indie project together. In 2018, Colm and Jack’s childhood friend – Sam McCann (bass); prolific on the fuzz pedal – joined them to bring that maelstrom that would edge them into the hallowed Dublin scene (think Silverbacks, Fontaines DC), and Sprints was born.

Sprints’ clarity in what they wanted to achieve stems also from needing to orchestrate a sound that would be a fit for Karla’s emotive lyrics, which tackle some brutal issues fearlessly and articulately.

Release Date: 26th March 2020
