SPRINTS: “Shadow Of A Doubt”

The brilliant SPRINTS return with a new single, ‘Shadow Of A Doubt,’ from their hotly-anticipated debut album, ‘Letter To Self,’ and it’s quite a statement. It starts deceptively slowly before exploding into life, fusing passion, vulnerability, and the band’s ability to be brutally honest and address subjects head-on. This is something Karla Chubb, SPRINTS’ lead vocalist, acknowledges when she says:” Shadow Of A Doubt is our most vulnerable moment to date. It very bluntly deals with the experience of trauma, depression, and the aftermath. It was written quite selfishly – to take the weight of some of those feelings off myself by placing them on a page in an attempt to feel like I was healing, or ridding myself of them. An entirely cathartic process. “

The vocal was recorded in three takes with jagged breaths and some misstepped lyrics purposefully left in. Here, we felt emotion was more important than perfection.”
