Before the release of their first album Message to self On Friday, January 5, Sprints shared another song from them called “Heavy.” It follows previous shows “Adore Adore Adore”, “Shadow of a Doubt”, “Literary Mind” and “Up and Comer”. Check it out below.
“If Ticking is the sonic iteration of anxiety, Heavy is its literal counterpart,” lead singer Carla Chubb explained in a statement. “The brutally dissonant sound conveys how paralyzed and inspired by anxiety feels, associating intrusive thoughts, panic and distress with this anxiety-inducing structure. Deeply inspired by my early recordings of the Bauhaus and PJ Harvey Is this the desire? It draws heavy influence from 1980s gothic style, a purposeful space that reflects the isolated nature of funk.
