Hailing from various parts of the UK, six-piece Sports Team met whilst studying at Cambridge. They’re now based in Harlesden (west London), tucked between the McVities biscuit factory and an evangelical church. With influences ranging from indie pioneers Pavement, through to 90s post punk also-rans The Family Cat, Sports Team channel a lyrical cynicism that touches on suburban clichés, young-professionals and the Britain in Bloom bleakness of the commuter belt.

“A bratty and scratchy indie-rock anthem which brings the band in line with fellow rising Brits such as Shame and The Magic Gang”
