Sprints have released new track ‘Little Fix’ taken from their upcoming EP A Modern Job, which is out 11th March 2022 on Nice Swan Records. The Dublin band who have been quoted on a number of Ones To Watch lists for 2022 open their account for the year with this banger.
Explosive and instantly attention grabbing Sprints continue to create energising music blending the personal with punk attitude. Not afraid to share lyrics which are brutally honest this is combined with fierce garage punk guitars which seem particularly prominent in ‘Little Fix‘. The mid-track riff of the electric guitar is like a blast of adrenalin. The pace is ferocious, and the delivery is tight. The lyrics are intense and thought-provoking but this does not detract from the song, on the contrary you are swept up in the emotion and the energy.
Lead singer Karla Chubb says of ‘Little Fix‘:
“Plagued by insecurities, imposter syndrome and gender stereotypes, Little Fix is the culmination of all my fears – the, sometimes, self applied pressure that as a woman in music I can’t just be good, I have to be great.
I feel like I am in a constant state of proving myself. That no matter what I achieve, learn, write, play or sing, there will always be a critic, a voice in the crowd or in my head telling me that it’s still not good enough, that there’s a million men out there who are better and I’ll always just be “good for a girl”.
Little Fix is a song that instead of running away from that fear, shit talk and criticism, it runs head first at 100 miles an hour into it. Pulling influence from Thee Oh Sees and Courtney Barnett, it’s lyrically the song I am most proud of and one that on tour proved a serious fan favourite“
