Brisbane-based group Cub Sport have just released their new single and video “Always Got The Love”. Arguably the most successful independent (self-managed and self-released) band in Australia, the video stars all members – lead singer Tim Nelson, vocalist and keyboardist Sam Netterfield, guitarist and vocalist Zoe Davis and drummer Dan Puusaari – and sees the four-piece finding power in pure joy.
Written and produced with Simon Lam (Nearly Oratorio, Kllo) and mixed by Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Beyoncé, Childish Gambino), the new single rings in a new era for the group and marks the band’s first release since their 2020 critically-acclaimed album, “Like Nirvana”.
Powered by an effervescent 2-step beat and Tim Nelson’s radiant falsetto, “Always Got The Love” signifies what’s to come from Cub Sport. The seeds of the new single were planted in late 2020, when Cub Sport finally got to play shows in support of “Like Nirvana”. The result is a song that captures a moment of pure rapture, transmuting a golden moment in 2021 — a stop on a road trip at a heavenly beach — into dance floor euphoria.
Boasting over 200 million streams, Cub Sport’s music is self-produced and blends pop classicism with experimental and electronic elements. With an ARIA No.2 album to their name (2020’s “Like Nirvana”, No.1 Vinyl Sales chart, No.1 Australian Albums chart), Cub Sport have achieved some of the highest possible honors in Australian music, performing at the 2020 AFL Grand Final and placing in triple j’s Hottest 100 five times. The group are no stangers to us here at talkaboutpopmusic.com having featured them back in 2019 with “Sometimes” and their collaboration with none other than Darren Hayes, “I Never Cried So Much In My Whole Life“.
