Sprints return with new single ‘Adore Adore Adore

The Dublin band will be supporting Suede later in the year.

Sprints are back with their new single ‘Adore Adore Adore’. The track is available now on City Slang Records.

Speaking about the single, lead vocalist Karla Chubb has said: “There is still a different standard of behaviour expected from me vs even the other members in Sprints. There is a different set of invisible rules I am supposed to abide by I am supposed to fit their mould and give them what they want and not deliver what it is I am here to do. So at a time when trans rights are under attack, people are trying to force upon us what they think a woman is or should be, this is the outward expression of my own frustration, struggle and rage.”

The Dublin four-piece formed while at a Savages gig in 2019. Catch them live at the following dates:
