With their debut EP ‘Manifesto’ set to make an impact when it lands on 26th March via Nice Swan Records, Sprints are giving us the latest taste of what to expect with frenzied new track ‘Swimming’.
Speaking on the song, singer Karla Chubb says, “While the homeless crisis worsens, the city is sinking in debt and everyone can barely keep their heads above water, you see an article stating that a new €25 million white water rafting centre is being developed after approval by Dublin City Council. Sometimes you’d just rather drown.”
