There are few trajectories in Australian music more remarkable than that of Cub Sport. Since they emerged as a promising young indie band in the early-2010s, the Meanjin (Brisbane) four-piece, comprised of Tim Nelson, Sam Netterfield, Zoe Davis and Dan Puusaari, have become known for their powerful, must-see live show and their ardent fanbase, as well as ARIA Platinum- and Gold-certified singles like "Come On Mess Me Up," "Chasin" and "Sometimes." Prolific and profoundly influential, Cub Sport are one of Australia's most significant pop exports, and arguably the most successful independent (self-managed and self-released) band in the country.
Boasting over 250 million streams and an ARIA #2 album to their name (2020's Like Nirvana, #1 Vinyl Sales chart, #1 Australian Albums chart) Cub Sport have achieved some of the highest possible honours in Australian music, performing at the 2020 AFL Grand Final and placing in triple j's Hottest 100 five times. Their music, which is largely self-produced and blends pop classicism with experimental and electronic elements, has been praised by the likes of The Guardian, BBC Radio 1, Rolling Stone, Billboard, i-D, Vice, Gay Times, The FADER and countless others. In 2023, Cub Sport are set to return with long-awaited new music, set to provide more hope and joy at a time when it's sorely needed.
