With their new EP ‘A Modern Job’ out on 11th March 2022 on Nice Swan Records, Dublin’s Sprints have given us the latest taste of what to expect, sharing new single ‘Little Fix’.
On the new single, singer Karla Chubb says, “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.”
