Australia’s Cub Sport have announced a new offering ‘Songs About It’, out on 2nd March. The new track will feature on their forthcoming fifth album ‘Jesus At The Gay Bar’ due for release on the 7th April. The title of the new album was inspired by writer Jay Hulme’s poem of the same name and finds Tim Nelson, Sam Netterfield, Zoe Davis and Dan Puusaari largely shedding hang-ups and celebrating love and life in all its manifestations.
“There’s a lot from my life before I came out that has always been shrouded in shame, fear and secrecy. But it doesn’t have to be a secret anymore, and I feel like I can really shine a light on the magic of it and recognise and celebrate it for what it was and is. A lot of this album is validating my younger self – like if I could have heard some of these songs back then, I might have found some peace within myself sooner, maybe even celebration.”Tim Nelson
‘Songs About It’ is a jangly, ecstatic track that bounces along with a 90s-inspired piano riff and irresistible bass. It’s a glorious slice of pure pop. The new single follows on from previous release “Keep Me Safe” which saw recent spot plays on BBC Radio 1’s Future Artists with Jack Saunders.
