Formally known as Cub Scouts, AMBY had the opportunity of interview Brisbane indie-pop quintet Cub Sport! Recently releasing a new film clip titled Paradise (and the first under their new name), Club Sport are showing that their sound still holds that joyful, upbeat, summer-esque vibe their fans love. Dive into our interview with the group as we talk about hailing from Brisbane, their great music videos, wresting on tour, and more.
AMBY: Hello Cub Sport, how are you and what have you been up to?
Cub Sport: Hello! We’re great, thank you! We’ve finished our first tour outside of Australia. We played shows all through the UK and also some shows in Singapore and Vietnam. Now we’re just getting ready to release our new single and EP ‘Paradise’
AMBY: If you had to describe each member in the band with one word, which word would define them?
Cub Sport: Zoe: Funny, Tim: Dogs, Sam: Charismatic, Dan: Smart, Andy: Resourceful.
AMBY: Which songs off the Told You So EP are your favourite, and why?
Cub Sport: A favourite of mine is ‘Evie.’ I wrote it about one of my dogs. It was our first single ever and even though it’s one of our older songs, we still love playing it.
AMBY: Does hailing from Brisbane have an influence on your sound, and if yes, how?
Cub Sport: Brisbane is pretty nice and summery all year, so maybe that has worked its way into our sound.
AMBY: Your music videos are great, we especially like Pool. Which is your favourite?
Cub Sport: I think my favourite clip is Told You So. It was such a fun clip to shoot, it made me want to start a BMX gang in real life.
AMBY: It looks like the band likes to have fun while on tour (between swimming in infinity pools, and meeting orangutans). So, what’s the funniest thing to happen to you while on tour?
Cub Sport: The funniest thing that happens on every tour is when Zoe wrestles Dan. It is actually incredible.
AMBY: Speaking of touring, what were your favourite songs to play on this tour?
Cub Sport: I think Told You So and Scream were probably my personal favourites. They’re both a bit more down beat which can be nice for a change.
AMBY: What are three things you could not live without?
Cub Sport: Pets, the band and food.
AMBY: If you could tour anywhere in the world, where would you go and who would you be playing with?
Cub Sport: A giant world tour with Beyonce is the ultimate dream.
AMBY: What’s the best release of the year so far?
Cub Sport: I’d say Daft Punk – Random Access Memories.
AMBY: And lastly, what’s something about Cub Sport that nobody knows yet?
Cub Sport: Zoe is actually an incredible dancer.
Thank you Cub Sport, for giving us your answers!
