SPRINTS’ debut album ‘Letter to Self’ embodies their substantial evolution over the past 3 years. Transforming pain into truth, passion into purpose and perseverance into strength, the Dublin four-piece have steadily grown in stature, releasing two acclaimed EPs and building a fearsome live reputation.
‘Letter to Self’ is the sound of SPRINTS consolidating and levelling up. Exhibiting their most vulnerable moments and imbuing their visceral garage-punk with a palpable sense of catharsis that we can all benefit from.
Inspired by Savages, their sound matured into energetic and abrasive garage-punk, synthesising influences ranging from early Pixies, Bauhaus, Siouxsie Sioux, IDLES and LCD Soundsystem.
Singer, guitarist and lead-songwriter Karla Chubb tackles her inner turmoil head-on and uses her platform to address inequality and issues close to hear heart, like the campaign for ‘Repeal The 8th’, and women’s ongoing fight for bodily autonomy, struggles with self-acceptance, identity, mental health struggles, sexuality and catholic guilt.
