Not all over the place on the earth is preparing for the winter season. It’s best to remember the other occurs in Australia, that November means the nation is heading into its summer season. As such, I at all times turn out to be fairly excited by Australian pop music presently of 12 months. Since, additionally this can be a time that it has turn out to be customary that one in every of my favorite Australian bands, Cub Sport, put new music out. On the event of their new single “Replay,” the cubbies are branching out into dance music. Extra particularly, they’re working a propulsive home model of a dance document.
However actually, Cub Sport is fearless in attempting one thing new musically. So it shouldn’t be shocking that the band has made the leap into dance music for his or her newest launch. Since they’ve been inching on this route on their previous few tracks. Even with the change evident, Cub Sport isn’t abandoning its signature model of open-hearted lyricism.
Explaining “Replay” Tim Nelson says it “is about shifting ahead… Emotions aren’t so simple as we generally make out. You may lengthy for one thing and never need it on the similar time. You may love one thing however outgrow it”.
“I believe it’s about shifting from eager for one thing to feeling free. Nevertheless it additionally doesn’t need to be that deep,” he concludes.
For the music video, Tim Nelson (the band’s entrance particular person) self-directed and edited the clip. The idea behind the video is modelled after the film cult traditional “Everlasting Sunshine of the Spotless Thoughts“.
There may be nothing like setting the bar excessive, drawing affect from a critically acclaimed film. A collection of quick clips linked collectively comprise the video. Successfully evokes the emotions of the post-break-up section. A thoughts in a recall. The filtering of recollections. Finally the lack of connection. But, the music’s sense of craving is remedied by the gentle and dreamy music, in the identical manner as a heat, comforting hug.
It might have by no means occurred to me 6 years in the past, after I began writing in regards to the band, that they’d department out into dance music. But, by the identical token. Since I’m listening to Cub Sport dance tracks now. I confess to discovering these new songs wholly irresistible and catchy.
