Sprints Release New Single ‘How Does The Story Go?’
Sprints share the new single ‘How Does The Story Go?’out nowvia Nice Swan Records.
With ‘How Does The Story Go?,’ the band reflect upon the nature of the sacrifice that comes with pursuing a career in the arts, saying: “Friends are emigrating, buying houses, growing older and maturing, whatever that means, and sometimes you feel stuck. It feels like the world is spinning and moving around you, and while there is nothing else I’d rather be doing than playing music with my adopted family, sometimes you can’t help but feel left behind.” Raw and raucous, Sprints are a garage-noise four-piece from Dublin. They combine guitar-driven hooks, motoric rhythm and emotive lyricism to create a unique sound that pulls from garage, grunge, punk and beyond. Like the Irish guitar acts who have paved the way for them: Fontaines D.C., Silverbacks and Girl Band, the sound of Sprints is urgent and vital at every turn.
This recording was supported through funding from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media Ireland as administered via the Music Industry Stimulus Package 2020.
