Pop quartet Cub Sport have not rested, it seems, since their debut record release in 2016, This is Our Vice. They visited the US that summer, then returned home to write more music and tour some more. Their sophomore album, BATS, came out the following year, amid more touring, as well as some personal news that two of the band’s members got engaged! Have a gift for the soon-to-be newlyweds? Hand it to Tim and Sam personally when you see Cub Sport as they travel around North America this spring!
Cub Sport are an independent pop group from Brisbane, Australia. They are now launching into the next phase of their career with their sophomore album, BATS. The group has cemented themselves as one to watch internationally with lead single “O Lord” premiering with glowing reviews on The Fader and receiving similarly high praises from media outlets such as i_D and Pedestrian worldwide. The gospel/RnB inspired pop anthem received full rotation on triple j and Radio 1 in the Netherlands alongside a host of US stations, racking up over 100,000 streams in a matter of days.
Largely recorded and produced at home by lead singer/songwriter Tim Nelson, the much-anticipated follow up record displays a new side of Cub Sport. While still deeply rooted in pop, the new album indulges soul and R&B influences, making for Cub Sport’s most honest, intimate and sexiest release to date.
