Raw and raucous, SPRINTS are a post-punk 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.

SPRINTS formed in late 2019 but have quickly been championed by the likes of BBC Radio 6, Radio 1, DIY, Clash Magazine, Nialler9 and Hot Press Magazine.

Driven by experience, tough political climates and social and economic uncertainty – their music is honest, often politically charged and authentic.

“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

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 Magazine
