Oklahoma duo Sports, aka childhood friends Cale Chronister and Christian Theriot, are back with a new single, The Look. It’s taken from their forthcoming EP ‘Get a Good Look Pt.1’, out on February 12th, and is a follow up to recent singles “Tell You Something”, “Baby Baby” and “Never Know”.
Of the track, vocalist and keyboard player Cale Chronister, says “”The Look” was inspired by a comment a stranger made to me while I was out eating lunch. He interrupted me and asked who my agent was, assuming that I was a model. And then wanted to help represent me. I just kind of laughed because it seemed like such an LA cliche. But he was serious and told me “You’ve got the look of the moment.”
The verses of the song were inspired by playing a show, like what goes on before Sports shows. Trying to cash in drink tickets, getting nervous. And also a story my dad told me about someone on LSD he saw jump out of a window because he thought he could fly. I don’t know if it’s a true story or if he was just trying to tell me not to do drugs. I don’t why, but for me it all connects. The verses are the green rooms, the unhealthy habits, the anxiety. The chorus is the stage. The stage is the drug.”
Smart and sassy indie funk, with popping bass lines and brushes of guitar lines sat alongside tumbling, hazy synth figures, The Look is frankly fabulous. Best of all though is that irresistable chorus, the suave vocals playing with you as it takes a hold on you.
We submit. Wholeheartedly. Check it out, here
