EDITORS’ NOTES

The period since Cub Sport’s second album, 2017’s BATS, has been a transformative one for the Brisbane quartet, to say the least, with singer Tim Nelson coming out and marrying bandmate Sam Netterfield. Nelson’s personal journey is referenced throughout the band's self-titled third LP: “I am not denying myself anymore,” he sings in the haunting a cappella opener, “Unwinding Myself.” The sensual R&B and synth-pop of “Butterflies” and “Come Out” are fitting bedfellows for Nelson’s lyrics, which reflect his newfound sense of self. Even when essaying the difficulties of the period (the retro synth stylings of “Sometimes”), it still feels like a celebration.
