PRESENTED BY GREER CLEMENS

There are a handful of seminal bands from Brisbane, Australia—The Saints and The Go-Betweens, among them. But few have achieved the breakout success that the dreamy indie-pop group Cub Sport has in merely three years. The blissed-out, anthemic title track from their first EP, Told You So, attracted global attention, which in the U.S. alone vaulted it up the top 20 college-radio chart. And based on enthusiasm for that debut, their second EP, Paradise, won Stateside audiences, too, thanks to airplay at influential radio outlets such as KEXP, WXPN and KCRW.

After touring everywhere from Singapore to Philly (“Some people drove four hours to see us. The American crowd is dedicated!” lead vocalist Tim Nelson enthuses), Cub Sport—which also features guitarist Zoe Davis, drummer Dan Puusaari and keyboardist Sam Netterfield—is finally ready to drop a full length, This Is Our Vice (Nettwerk), their hotly anticipated debut full length. If Nelson, who’s also the principle songwriter, has a superpower, it’s effortlessly transforming mercurial topics such as self-doubt and self-immolation into an expanse of shimmering harmonies and sticky melodies.
