Sports Team announce debut album with new song 'Here's The Thing'


What better way to announce your impending debut record than with a powerful new track and a stunning new video. Sports Team have done just that and single, ‘Here’s The Thing’ is our Track of the Day.

The six-piece have been causing a bubble of hype to grow ever larger over recent years as their enigmatic live show brought down the club circuit one venue at a time. Coupled with their killer instinct when it comes to songwriting and you have a serious band on your hands.

Sports Team are one such band as they provide not only the clout needed to make a dent in the industry but the artistic chops to make sure it’s an impact left in their image.

It has meant the anticipation for their debut album has been steadily growing. Now the band have announced their debut Deep Down Happy will arrive on April 3rd via Island Records, that feeling will only grow further.

The band’s Alex Rice told DIY of the upcoming album: “I don’t think we were conscious of doing it but the album maps the journey of moving in together in Harlesden, moving back to home towns to sleep on floors for 18 months, then coming back to London, weighing up whether being in a band with your mates, being young in London is still the best thing in the world. I think it probably is.”

For now, watch the brilliant new video for Sports Team’s ‘Here’s The Thing’ below:
