Cub Sport announce new album BATS with telling new video for O Lord
It's due September 22, and is shaping up to be something special.
Last month, Brisbane alt-pop quartet Cub Sport surprised many by releasing an achingly beautiful new single, O Lord, a track that comes with a equally stunning new video clip today, along with the news its the first single from their forthcoming second album, BATS. A deeply personal affair, O Lord was written by singer Tim Nelson after coming out as gay and in a relationship with bandmate Sam: “I was free to be my true self, I was finally in a relationship with the love of my life and I had full love and support from my friends and family, but what I didn’t expect was the realisation that when you get everything you’ve ever wanted you suddenly have everything to lose. This song ended up being my way of grappling with those feelings.”
Given Australia's current political climate, Cub Sport - along with already being a very awesome band - have become an incredibly important one, further evidenced in the new video clip which breaks down some of the personal battles with beauty and masculinity Tim has experienced in his life: "I feel like the O Lord video is the visual soulmate for the song - it beautifully represents what the song means for me and it feels like a personal triumph! I was bullied when I was growing up because I wasn’t as masculine as some of my peers apparently thought I should be. It’s something I’ve been self-conscious about for years, so it’s super liberating to make this video and feel free from judgement. The video was directed, shot and edited by the wonderful Joe Agius. I couldn’t imagine making this video with anybody else."
We are feverishly anticipating the new album, but until then will just have to enjoy O Lord and its stunning video clip, which you can also do, below:
