TUNE Sprinters - Figure It Out
Formed around the songwriting talents of one Neil Jarvis, Sprinters have been making sweetly melodic dreampop since late 2015. Beginning as a live vehicle for Jarvis' solo material, the band coalesced around a line-up that also includes bassist Jon Hodson, drummer Mark Stevenson and guitarist Jason Hughes. They've since honed their live set and gone on to play with the likes of Chastity Belt and La Luz, as well as post-punk veterans The Monochrome Set.
Taking influence from The Replacements, Neil Young and The Velvet Underground, while recalling the sunkissed jangle of Beach Fossils and Wild Nothing, the band are now preparing to release their self-titled debut via the Icecapades label. Sonically, it's a huge step forward from their earlier lo-fi recordings.
