Meet SPRINTS - a raw and raucous post-punk four-piece from Dublin. Combining guitar-driven hooks, motoric rhythm and emotive lyricism, their unique sound combines elements from grunge, garage, punk and beyond.
With a string of sold-out shows under their belt after a matter of months, SPRINTS formed in April 2019 but have quickly been championed by the likes of BBC Radio, Clash Magazine, Tony Clayton Lea, Dan Hegarty, Nialler9 and Hot Press Magazine.
Comprised of frontwoman Karla, Sam, Colm and Jack - their infectious, high-energy performances have quickly gained SPRINTS a reputation as one of Dublin's most ferocious live acts.
Recently named one of the Hot For 2020 acts by Hot Press, SPRINTS were recently featured at the legendary Other Voices festival in Ballina and are sure to be a big feature in the festival circuit this summer.
“With potent songwriting that packs a real punch, their punk-etched sound is visceral while hiding a natural knack for melody. It’s the kind of attitude-laden grunge nugget Garbage made their own and Wolf Alice seek to emulate” - Clash Music
“A massive two fingers to modern romantic antics while name dropping Dutch Gold on faster-than-life new single ‘Kissing Practice’” - Nialler9
“These guys are my new favourite band. The Cheek is a song so good it suits any occasion” Dan Hegarty, 2FM
“With a mixture of honesty and grit, SPRINTS are a beautiful snapshot of punk music in Ireland right now; raw, rambunctious, and going to be big.” - Atwood Magazine
“One of the most exciting acts around” John Barker, 98FM
