Nestled somewhere between Zayn Malik and Lennon Gallagher, Alex Rice can now have ‘heart throb’ added to his bow of accolades as he’s managed to land himself in the coveted pages of Vogue (or their online site, at least.) Listed as one of the 50 boys they’re spotlighting for 2018, this could be one of the bands finest accolades to date, no?

Find Alex sitting prettily amongst the other ‘hottest boys in the world’, here.

Sports Team reign supreme at Scala

Almost a week after what can only be described as a career pinnacle, Sports Team are still riding high from a triumphant headline slot at Scala. As sweaty, joyous and tongue-in-cheek as all the reviews have painted it out to be, it’s a definable milestone in the band’s career and a perfect end to a stellar summer.

The set finale is the snapshot every audience member will have imprinted in their brain’s; perched atop a speaker stack, dressed in a suit for the occasion, Alex Rice watches, enthralled, as a ferocious tide of crowd surfers bob to the surface before falling back under as set-closer Kutcher, an indie anthem for the ages, rings out around the venue. Balloons descend from a cage on the ceiling. A hand-made, tin foil sculpture of a shark (10 points for effort, guys) sits in the corner. Sweat gleams from every single person’s orifices. Fuck Robbie at Knebworth, this is the kind of intimate, grin-inducing set that bands surely live for.

The Guardian called it a reminder of why indie made it back from the brink and well, no one’s going to argue with The Guardian, right?
