SPRINTS are a four piece alternative rock group based in Dublin, Ireland. Combining emotive honest lyricism with raw and raucous guitars, they’re unique rock sound takes influences from post-punk and beyond.
Check out the lo-fi rock delight, “Modern Job” from SPRINTS. Topical and quite unassumingly refreshing, Karla Chubb vocally attacks the track with riveting lyrics and possessing cadence. “Modern Job” plays on a widely used theme in punk but with its own identity and tasteful design that echoes with the assaulting play of IDLES.
“Modern Job” is a critique of modern existence but also an exploration of growing up queer. In your formative years, you are bombarded with media, books, news that depict what a “normal” life should be. Grow up, fall in love, get married… long live the nuclear family. By contrast when you grow up queer all these ordinary things can seem extraordinary, out of reach and in some parts of the world, illegal. It leaves you feeling lost, excluded and confused. I wanted Modern Job to capture those feelings; chaotic energy, loneliness and longing of normality while trying to find acceptance within yourself,” says Chubb.
