Sprints - Chaise Longue


  Hopefully you all know and love Dublin quartet Sprints (https://www.facebook.com/sprintsmusic) and caught the 2 songs I've previously featured on here  https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2020/02/sprints-kissing-practice.html 

  Hopefully you'll have heard me playing tracks from their excellent new ep A Modern Job on the Just Some Punk Songs show. It's available on vinyl via Nice Swan Records and it's a must not miss release  https://sprintsmusic.bandcamp.com/album/a-modern-job

  Maybe you're going to see the band (Karla Chubb (Lead Singer and songwriter), Colm O’Reilly (Guitar), Jack Callan (Drums), Sam McCann (Bass Guitar)) on their upcoming tour of the UK and Ireland. 

  If you are going to watch them, there's a fair chance they may play a cover of a recent song that made a big impression on them. Is there anyone out there that's not stumbled across Wet Leg during the last 12 months? Probably not. They're the Isle Of Wight newbies that have appeared out of nowhere to become flavour of the month. Their debut album is on the horizon so expect to hear plenty more soon (the backlash is probably already gathering momentum as I type this!).

  Wet Leg's break out song has been covered live by Sprints, it's a version that doesn't deviate too much from the original though it is a bit angrier and a bit more scuffed up. It's a nice treat from one of the scene's best new bands. 

  This is Chaise Longue...
