Cub Sport




Youthful optimism and the confidence to not take yourself too seriously – Brisbane quintet, Cub Sport, blend infectious optimistic melodies with splashes of darkness in a potent distinctive alt pop cocktail.

Cub Sport’s journey so far has seen them undergo a metamorphosis, both in sound and name. It’s a journey that has seen them win the hearts of both Australian and international audiences. Releasing their debut single ‘Evie’ at the end of 2011 under original name ‘Cub Scouts’, the band quickly established itself as ‘one to watch.’. The band’s debut EP, Do You Hear, released in 2012 had instant traction cracking the CMJ College Radio top 20 in the US, and high rotation on European radio, as well as the title track receiving the  Australian Queensland Music Awards’ ‘Song of the Year’ in 2012.

Wind back the clock, and you’ll find a young Tim Nelson spending nights and weekends fiddling on a keyboard, writing his first songs.  After completing the entire set of piano examinations available in his home country of Australia, Nelson began to explore creating music of his own, fleshing out the sound alongside a group of friends, who dubbed themselves the Cub Scouts, after an evening’s fashion choices allude to a young brigade of explorers.

Come back to the present, and and Cub Sport have, cris-crossed Australia and performed standout sets at all over the world. Shows in The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Singapore and Vietnam in early 2013 gave the world a taste of what was incubating in their hometown of Brisbane, and now with their breakthrough EP, Paradise, Cub Sport are ready to play ball.

Cub Sport’s EP, Paradise, shows that the group are far more than a sugar-coated indie pop powerhouse. Darker more sinister tones reminiscent of Nelson’s first songwriting explorations can still be found in the bitey EP tracks of  “Shuffle” and “Scream”. This band has much more to say than just retelling anecdotes about trespassing found in the summer anthem “Pool!”, or about eating sweetly sour candy (“Sherbet”). Come play in Paradise, with Cub Sport.
