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”.
