Struck Gold

    'Manchester's Sprinters return with their sophomore LP 'Struck Gold' on Meritorio Records. Initially a solo recording project of Neil Jarvis, the now four-piece released their self-titled debut on Manchester’s Icecapades in 2017, combining elements of surf, indie and dream pop. On ‘Struck Gold’ the band explore different territory and offer a much more ambitious affair. Sonically the songs are more powerful, more focused, and the songwriting more streamlined. The shiny indie pop side to the band is dulled down and instead they offer up some of their raunchiest songs to date, dialing up the noise with a potent dose of raucous indie rock. First single ‘Ending’ is a shimmering drone rocker that climaxes in a wash of noise, second single ‘3’s & 4’s’ see’s the band honing their melancholy pop sensibility’s that made their debut stand out, whilst

    ‘Missing’ see’s the band at their rawest: blistering lead lines, and dreamy yet off kilter rhythm sections as the band explore shoegaze territory.. The album also has it’s softer moments, ‘The Light’ is the first ballad for the band and is melancholy pop gem.

    Within the 11 tracks, we hear a record full of confidence and heartfelt intimacy, making ‘Struck Gold’ a must have guitar LP.'

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Another absolute beauty here from Sprinters (one of my personal favourite Icecapades releases a couple years back). Beautiful melodies and rich, languid instrumentation make this a fittingly gorgeous follow-up.
