Cub Sport release “City Of Angels”

Cub Sport continue to be one of LGBTQ’s most distinctive voices. To celebrate the end of a momentous 2019 the unstoppable Australian 4-piece announce “333” – a visual triple a-side consisting of three brand new tracks with accompanying videos, released over three consecutive weeks. Their second song off the new project “333” is the carefully crafted offering, “City Of Angels.” The new release carries a swift beat in between delicate and swelling choral sections and harnesses Cub Sport’s trademark blend of sensual evocative pop.

“City Of Angels” captures a moment of tranquillity and inner peace. It’s an idyllic reality, a moment of feeling so good that all other worries fall away and you just want to stay there. It’s about reflecting, healing, growing. It’s a gentle acknowledgment of the connectedness of all living things, that we are everywhere and that we are everything.” says lead singer Tim Nelson. Cub Sport kicked off the “333” project with the release of “Hearts In Halves” on December 10th. The song was named one of TIME Magazine’s Best 5 Songs of the Week and was added to dozens of playlists this week including Spotify’s New Music Friday and Indie Pop playlists and Apple Music’s Hot Tracks Indie and New Music Daily playlists.

“Air”, the third and final release comes on December 24th, the band’s first-ever instrumental which expands to cosmic proportions, gliding along in sleepy, spaced out euphoria. “333 is made up of three songs that fit together to conjure a feeling of deep and healing euphoria” Tim continues. “It sweeps you up in all-encompassing hypnotic sonics; the chordal and harmonic combinations feel like a pang in your chest – there are forces of beauty, sorrow, growth, pain and joy. It’s uplifting, renewing and feels good in a holistic way. This release feels very significant. It feels like it has the energy of a whole album – there’s a message and a feeling within these songs. It’s powerful, it’s palpable, it feels GOOD and that’s why it needed to exist”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
