New record ‘adore adore adoreDiscover lead singer and guitarist Carla Chubb Reflecting on her experience as a Sprint front person. The women fronting punk bands are bound by patriarchal standards of acceptance. Karla further expands:
“The standards of conduct expected of me are still different than those of other members of Sprint. There is another invisible rule that I must follow. I’m supposed to fit their mold and give them what they want, not what I’m supposed to do here.
So at a time when trans rights are under attack, people are trying to impose on us what they think women should be. This is my own external expression of frustration, conflict, and anger.“
Sadly, it’s an all too common theme, and Sprint are a band unafraid to confront the harsh realities of society and the music industry head-on. ‘adore adore adoreYou can see they put their heart and soul into the track, which should come as no surprise to anyone who knows their music. Although their debut album has yet to be released, the band has come a long way in the last few years, although it has been recorded. The frenzied energy of their music he recreates tenfold in his astounding live performances.
“The only spirit in our music is to write important and meaningful things. It’s all about expressing our identity and injecting our personality into it.“
