Sprints: Drones

Steadily rising post punk Dubliners, Sprints, announce their forthcoming debut EP and introduce it with new song, Drones, a very impressive cut paired to a totally imposing visual both of which make for a quite tense and nervy unit, showing the band's teeth, and convincing that their immediate future has a lot to provide.

With a more minimal direction which flaunts subtle industrial undertones, Drones, just like the rest of the band's coming EP, Manifesto, was produced by Girl Band's Daniel Fox, and the almost surrealistic accompanying video was directed and produced by James Baldwin, Hannah Gallagher and Bob Kiberd, starring Kerry Mahony.

"Drones is very literally about my struggles with imposter syndrome," says lead singer and songwriter, Karla Chubb. "I think being a female in music, I struggle a lot with feeling like I have something to prove. It’s not okay for me to just be good, I have to be great. I have to prove constantly why I am deserving to be on the stage, or holding that guitar or that microphone. That pressure can be very difficult to deal with, and I think a lot of the times you doubt yourself then, am I actually able to write? Or is this all shit? Drones is about my experiences with dealing with this pressure, but realising that a lot of people have these struggles. The bars fill, the car parks fill, life seems to go on and on, and we can become so focused internally on our issues that you don’t realise that maybe while I was wishing I was someone else, they’re also wishing the same thing."
