Why do we like this?

Kick start your morning with this punch to the guts from Irish punk rockers, Sprints. The title track taken from their highly anticipated EP, Manifesto, is a spiraling burst of guitar fuzz showcasing the commanding presence of vocalist and songwriter, Karla Chubb. Speaking about the song she had this to say:

'Manifesto' is all about control, and the seeming lack of it we have sometimes - control over our own lives, our own bodies, our own societies. Written during the time of the Repeal the 8th referendum in Ireland, it's a call for equality.

Life can feel like it's unravelling around you. We see our countries fall in and out of economic crisis, we see the homeless crisis worsen by the day, we see the rapid rise of addiction and drug problems, and nothing is being done about, yet when it comes to telling women what they can do with their own bodies, that's when people (the bigots) step in and show up? It baffled me.

'Manifesto' is about turning your cheek to the critics and bigots and those who judge and doubt, to try shake the shackles of everyday existence and mundanity and go carve your own path.

The song is an absolute corker and a great introduction to anyone unfamiliar with Sprints.
