Six-piece Sports Team met in Cambridge, swiftly making a name for themselves on the back if their visceral, erratic live shows - a feature that has remained a hallmark.
Their debut EP ‘Winter Nets’, produced by Dave McCracken (Ian Brown, Depeche Mode), was released in January 2018 and serves as a darkly humorous introduction to their weird world, channelling a lyrical cynicism that touches on young professionals and provincial cliches.
The ensuing 12 months were good to the band, with a sold out show at London venue Scala, the formation of their own label ‘Holm Front’, and follow up single ‘Kutcher’ named BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record in the World.
Sports Team’s latest release ‘Here It Comes Again’ treads a uniquely English path, but one which now feels definitively theirs - cementing them as one of the country’s most important and exciting discoveries.
