Mad Mackerel Recommends… Sprints

Not sure what is in the water there, but four-piece Sprints are our latest brilliant Dublin discovery joining the likes of Fontaines D.C., The Murder Capital, Girl Band and Silverbacks.

We missed early single Kissing Practice, but are loving this new track The Cheek, a raw, raucous and bass fuelled single with post-punk and alt-rock influences. Laced with sarcasm, the song tackles sexuality head on.

Drawing influence from the likes of Sonic Youth, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, The Strokes and LCD Soundsystem – there is a boisterous, energetic and retro feel to what they do but very much sounding as fresh and exciting as their local peers.

Love this.

 

And the one we missed…
