LISTEN: Sydney Sprague – ‘i refuse to die’

A stirring piece of guitar-pop that encourages listeners to try their best against the odds, songwriter Sydney Sprague has shared her latest single ‘i refuse to die’. Released via Rude Records who Sprague has recently signed to, the track is a fiery ode to persevering with what you love, even when the world is getting you down.

“This song is a desperate wish for good luck,” explains Sprague. “Looking around at the world [today] it feels like it didn’t work.” Despite the unfortunate timing of the release, ‘i refuse to die’ is still a catchy track that urges listeners to resist the forces of negativity. Brimming with the 90s guitar pop vibes that Sprague loves, her blend of modest yet confidence-boosting lyrics – “I can do that thing I said I’d never / I think it’s time to try” – gracefully compliment her melodies.

“I’m so grateful that I get to continue to do what I love thanks to Rude Records,” comments Sprague about her recent signing. “To have the support of this team, especially during this odd time, is a literal dream come true. I can’t wait to show you what we’ve got planned.” Listen to ‘i refuse to die’ below and follow Sydney Sprague on Spotify, Instagram & Twitter for more updates.
