CUB Sport are bringing their own brand of indie dream pop to the region next week as part of their UK and European headline album tour, in collaboration with Get it Loud in Libraries.

The independent Australian quartet have risen to great heights since the release of their debut album in 2015.

Following their sold out headlining Australian tour in support of their second album, BATS, their single, Sometimes debuted at number 11 on the Australian Independent Singles Chart in October 2018 and has hit 2.3 million streams on Spotify.

The band’s third, self-titled album was released last month and hit top spot on the ARIA Australian Artist Albums chart. Their message of self-acceptance and expression, founded in lead singer Tim Nelson and his husband and keyboardist Sam ‘Bolan’ Netterfield’s relationship with their own sexuality, have struck a chord with their fans and have contributed to, not only their recent success, but their reputation for activism on behalf of the LGBTQ community. In fact, Billboard Pride named Cub Sport their first ever artist of the month.

Tim, Sam and the other two Cub Sport members, guitarist and vocalist, Zoe Davis and drummer, Dan Puusaari, began playing music together in 2010, forming the band in 2011.

Tim admits struggling to come to terms with his sexuality had a massive affect on his songwriting and only in 2014, with the release of their debut album, Told You So, did the songs begin to reflect his true self (The Line of Best Fit).

Cub Sport play Kendal Library on Friday, February 22. And with such a strong relationship between the band and their fans, it’s little wonder they’ve chosen to perform in such an intimate venue.

Live music in local libraries has proved popular and gives audiences of all ages the chance to get up close and personal with their favourite acts.

Kendal Library has previously hosted a number of successful live music events, including Cate Le Bon, Rae Morris and Tim Burgess, lead singer of the Charlatans.

Tickets for Cub Sport’s gig at Kendal Library are available at or the Get it Loud in Libraries website at
