Indulge in Cub Sport's sensational new single, O Lord

The Australian four-piece are back, tackling a gospel-infused sound for their best single yet.

Following on from their successful debut record This Is Our Vice, Brisbane-based indie-pop darlings Cub Sport are back, armed with another amazing single. O Lord is a gospel-infused indie anthem about coming out of the closet, taking notes from their Ultralight Beam Like A Version to channel a spectacular sound similar to Savage Garden or even Solange. "I wrote O Lord in the wake of coming out last year," explains the group's Tim Nelson. "I suddenly had everything I’d ever wanted. 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."

These quotes from Tim are actually incredibly handy, not just to aid in the understanding of O Lord that little bit better, but because O Lord is one of those rare songs that I actually cannot write about. The single's soulful vocal groove is impeccable and moving, prancing in the spotlight above a stripped-back, acoustic instrumental which give the vocals the perfect platform to truly shine. The single's opening 40 seconds are particularly breathtaking, but before I give too much away and ruin the magic, I'm just going to shut up and let Cub Sport's moving, tear-inducing return do the talking.
