Cub Sport's forthcoming debut album This is Our Vice, (out June 17th) an album filled with mercurial topics such as self-doubt and self-immolation that are crafted into an expanse of shimmering harmonies.There are a handful of seminal bands from Brisbane, Australia; cult favourites The Saints, and The Go-Betweens amongst them. Few of these bands, despite their status now, can claim to have achieved the level of breakout success that the Cub Sport - Tim Nelson (lead vocals), Zoe Davis (guitar), Dan Puusaari (drums), Sam Netterfield (keyboard) has in merely three years. Cub Sport first caught attention with their Told You So EP (2012) and Paradise EP (2013). The blissed-out, anthemic track Paradise landed them an evening playlist, and a coveted John Kennedy Session at XFM, and a session with Dan Roberts at BBC London; not bad for the band's first venture to the UK! The band then spent the following year impressing at various seminal festivals around the world, including Brighton's The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Music Matters Singapore, London's Calling in Amsterdam and multiple packed rooms during NYC's CMJ Music Marathon.
