Sports Team Inspired By English Summers And World Cup Optimism On New Single Margate

Thursday, 02 August 2018 Written by Helen Payne

And the award for best dancing goes to…Sports Team.

The indie-punks’ new track Margate is the energetic, desperate lovechild of a more agitated Maccabees and a more frantic Pavement, with Alex’s Rice’s playful vocals matching his wriggling, jerky dancing perfectly.

With an old-school video shot around the town itself, Margate revels in the English summer time. As the band note:

“Hosepipe bans. Overgrown hedgerows. Frayed tempers. The season of Reeling in the Years and tailbacks on the A303. We went in to record it with Burke [Reid] during the first group stage games, when things were looking up. Some of that optimism rubbed off.”

The single is to be released as a double a-side with Kutcher, which dropped in May through their own Holm Front Records.

To coinicide with the single's release, the six-piece play an intimate launch show at Margate’s own Tom Thumb Theatre on August 3. In true Sports Team fashion, they’ve hired a coach to bring over 30 of their tight knit fan base along. They’ve also confirmed a much bigger headline show at London's Scala on September 19.

Sports Team Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows:

Fri August 03 2018 - MARGATE Tom Thumb Theatre
Wed September 19 2018 - LONDON Scala
