Now Wave’s brand spankin’ new venue YES is set for a visit from Brisbane indie-pop outfit Cub Sport. Following the release of their sophomore album ‘BATS’ on their own record label Cub Sport Records, the self-managed Aussie outfit have announced a small string of shows in the UK, stopping at Charles St on 15th February. Tickets are on sale Monday 8th October at 9am.
Formed by singer-songwriter Tim Nelson in 2010, their first EP came just months later in the shape of ‘Tim Nelson & The Cub Scouts’. Following a dispute from Australia’s Scouts, the band settled on Cub Sport in 2013, releasing their first LP ‘This Is Our Vice’ in 2016. Cub Sport’s openness with fans has helped develop a culture of inclusion around the band, finding fans around the world with their brand of “emotionally-charged pop”. Their most recent album is deeply personal collection of songs chronicling lead singer Tim Nelson’s journey of coming out as gay and admitting his love for fellow band member Sam (Bolan) Netterfield.
Club Sport perform at YES on 15th February 2019. Tickets are available here.
