One of our favorite new bands is hailing from Brisbane is most certainly Cub Sport.
Their unique sound of blending electronic pop with traditional organ/gospel elements on their latest album “Bats” had me intrigued and transfixed for months from the very first moment I heard seminal track “O Lord”.
The band are currently on the road playing out “Bats” to sold-out audiences across the globe and they will hit North London on May 9th for a special show at The Waiting Room – a gig I’ve had in my diary for quite a long time.
Cub Sport were in London late January and I got a chance to catch up with Tim Nelson and Sam Netterfield to talk about all things “Bats” including their singles “Chasin” and “Good Guys Go”, why supporting gay marriage in Australia is important to them and what the meaning is behind their track “Hawaiian Party” – something I’ve been dying to know about for quite some time.
Honestly, everything about Cub Sport has a certain innocent and warm glow to it. The lush sounds and the unmistakeably affection and love between real-life partners Tim and Sam just feels overwhelmingly honest, pure-hearted and true. Cub Sport’s music brand creates a feeling of euphoria that envelops you when you listen to “Bats” for the first time. Listen, I don’t stan very hard for that many bands these days, but if you’re in the mood for a new music obsession, then by all means, leap right into the harmonious soundscape that Cub Sport are weaving.
I hope you enjoy this little chat I had with them…
