Film/TV folks should check out Aussie foursome Cub Sport, who are working at a high level to deliver rich, well-produced recordings that capture a consistent vision, one that envelopes the listener in a world of dreamy reverb that exudes an appropriate warmth and sincerity along with a pinch of melancholy. The song’s vocals are awesome on the soul-baring “Be Your Man,” where the singer confesses “Sometimes my truth feels like a lie.” The singer is even more touching on “My Dear” conveying a convincing vulnerability. The lead vocals shift to a childlike tone on “Drive” and again results in music that is dreamily melodic, intimate and affecting. Labels should check out this band asap.
