Cub Sport release new single “Confessions” and confirm new album details

Bravely continuing to pave the way for LGBTQ pride, Australian alt-pop outfit Cub Sport finally confirm details of their anticipated fourth album, ‘LIKE NIRVANA,’ out May 8th via the band’s own label, Cub Sport Records/Believe. Ahead of that the band has dropped the first single, ‘Confessions.’ Watch here

Following the release of their acclaimed visual triple A-side ‘333’ and the announcement of a US tour that promises further international dates, their brand new track, ‘Confessions’ unveils a new era for Cub Sport.

Soft in its vulnerabilities and direct in its effect, ‘Confessions’ draws you in with its heart then breaks out into an explosive purging of energy and emotion. True to its namesake, ‘Confessions’ is a gritty introspective slow burn with gently thundering guitars, crackling drums and an achingly tender vocal, all at once visceral and triumphant in its beauty. This account of rousing personal revelation is yet another ambitious evolution for the band’s seemingly unstoppable ascent and an exciting taster of the upcoming new record.

Tim Nelson: “Confessions feels like an emotional purge. The lyrics flowed in a stream of consciousness and when I listened back, I realised I’d articulated lots of things I’d been avoiding saying out loud. Musically, it’s really different to anything I’ve written and produced before. It’s gritty, soaring and liberating, you feel it as much as you hear it. I’m hoping this song sets other people free the way it has for me.”
