Their latest was produced by Daniel Fox of Gilla Band.

Produced by Gilla Band’s Daniel Fox, Sprints are sharing their latest single ‘Literary Mind’.

“Literary Mind is probably one of our most light-hearted songs in Sprints in terms of subject matter, while still exploring something quite close to heart,” Karla Chubb notes. “It’s a real deep dive and exploration into the feeling of falling in love, particularly queer love, in which you feel like you’ve been conditioned to believe a heteronormative way of life is the only ‘right’ way to live, which leads to incredible difficulty and emotional oppression.

“You push these feelings down, ignoring them, praying them away even but eventually with acceptance comes a rush of emotion that you never thought you’d feel. You unlock, finally, what it means to be happy and with it comes the rollercoaster of emotions, hot sweats, fever dreams, happiness, giddiness and excitement that we’ve tried to capture in the energy and pace of the song.”
