Cub Sport

Based in Brisbane, Australia, the pop quartet released their debut album This Is Our Vice in 2016 and won over audiences internationally with their unique brand of emotionally-charged pop. Musical successes aside, Cub Sport are keen humanitarians. In mid-2016 band members Tim and Sam came out as gay and in a relationship. Alongside out-and-proud guitarist/vocalist Zoe, the band use their platform to speak out against homophobia. The band is set to release their sophomore album, BATS, and while still deeply rooted in pop, the new album explores soul and R&B influences, making for Cub Sport’s most honest, intimate and sexiest release to date.

Green Tea Restaurant
"Green Tea is a Vietnamese restaurant in China Town. We've been going there regularly for about 8 years now and have become friends with the owner Tom. Everything on the menu is amazing so Tom will often surprises us with custom banquets — it's the best. If you go, tell Tom Cub Sport sent you and ask for the tomato fried rice." — Cub Sport

The Low Road Cafe & Bar
"The food is top tier but feels homely, the space has a really lovely vibe and the staff are incredibly lovely. And my fav thing about The Low Road is that they're WOKE — definitely worth following on your socials! The usual order is a soy iced latte but sometimes a Bloody Mary depending on what sort of morning it is." — Cub Sport

"A couple of Brisbane's best karaoke spots have changed hands/closed down so there aren't too many late-night options but if you're keen for some early karaoke, Wagaya has a great system with all of the hits and touch screens for ordering food and drinks. Our dream combo is Plum Wine and Mariah Carey/Shania Twain/Celine Dion." — Cub Sport

Downey Park
"The house we were living in when I wrote/recorded BATS is right near Downey Park. It's a peaceful, wide open park with a mangrove-lined creek on its border that's home to a colony of thousands of bats. Most evenings we'd take our dogs Missy and Evie down to the park and watch the bats wake up and fill the sky as the sun would set. It was a truly beautiful thing to experience and looking back, those walks down at the park feel like a calming constant in a period of significant change and personal development. That has really stayed with me and has inspired this album both musically and visually." — Cub Sport
