Cub Sport are an independent pop group from Brisbane, Australia. In 2016, Cub Sport's break-out single "Come On Mess Me Up" caught the attention of The 1975's Matty Healy and scored Cub Sport an invitation to join the UK band for their 2016 Australian arena tour. The pop-ballad proved to connect similarly across Australia and landed a much-coveted spot in triple j's hottest 100 coming in at #24 after high rotation airplay and receiving over 4,500,000+ streams on Spotify and 400,000+ YouTube views.
Musical successes aside, Cub Sport are keen humanitarians. In mid-2016 band members Tim and Sam came out as gay and in a relationship. Alongside out-and-proud guitarist/vocalist Zoe, the band use their platform to speak out against homophobia and continually strive to develop and encourage a safe community on the band's social media channels as well as at shows.
Cub Sport are now launching into the next phase of their career with their sophomore album, BATS. The group have cemented themselves as one to watch internationally, receiving glowing reviews from The Fader, Huffington Post, NYLON and i-D. Largely recorded and produced at home by lead singer/songwriter Tim Nelson, the much-anticipated follow up record displays a new side of Cub Sport. While still deeply rooted in pop, the new album indulges soul and R&B influences, making for Cub Sport's most honest, intimate and sexiest release to date.
