SPRINTS SHARE A COVER OF CHAISE LONGUE
U.K. HEADLINE TOUR STARTS NEXT WEEK
A MODERN JOB EP OUT 11TH MARCH 2022 ON NICE SWAN RECORDS

“On course towards future raucous, beer-soaked headline festival sets.” NME

“Screw-you power, relentless motorik rhythms and impressively large choruses.” The Guardian

“Sprints may be the latest to emerge from Dublin’s fertile stable of guitar-wielding new heroes, but their two-fingers-up, no-nonsense rattle’n’roll arrives as the natural heir to Amyl and the Sniffers’ grot punk” – DIY

Sprints today share a frantic new cover of Wet Leg’s Chaise Longue. While offering a rowdier interpretation of the breakout hit, Sprints retain the sense of playfulness which made the single so popular. Sprints’ upcoming EP A Modern Job  is out 11th March 2022 on Nice Swan Records. The band will also tour the U.K. through Feb/March – full dates below.
For many U.K. fans, this tour will be the first time seeing Sprints as a headline act. The Chaise Longue cover will form part of their electric set, alongside recent singles Little Fix and Modern Job.
Today’s video marks a surprise release for fans ahead of the tour. On the cover, singer Karla Chubb says: “”Spending hours upon hours in a van or a Travelodge, our one escape on tour was music. We fell in love with Wet Leg, and Chaise Longue instantly upon its release. On a whim, we covered it at our first ever London show. It went down so well and was such fun to play we continued to play it show after show.
With some time on our hands, and preparing for our next UK + Ireland tour, we decided to do it some justice and record a real cover.” Sprints 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. Sprints have received a wealth of press support as well as love at Radio 1 and Radio 6Music. Recent single Modern Job was premiered by Steve Lamacq and covered by The Guardian, Dork, NME, Loud & Quiet, Gigwise and others.
