Sports Team "Deep Down Happy"
It’s been an extraordinary year for Sports Team, who have built a large, fiercely loyal and fervent fanbase around their electric live shows and a string of incendiary releases. Selling out Electric Ballroom, to doing the same doing the same at Kentish Town Forum in December before even releasing an album. Latest single ‘The Races’ achieved A-list at BBC 6 Music, B List at Radio 1. They’ve been defined though by an increasingly cultish fanbase spawned from online community pages, making 1000s of memes, pieces of artwork and crucially turning up wherever Sports Team play - from the bands annual Margate trip (where many of the songs were written) to the living room of the group’s shared house, first in Harlesden, now Camberwell.
Sessions for Deep Down Happy have been snuck in between huge tours at various London studios, including Konk and Livingston, with long-time collaborator Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever) once again at the production desk. Having first worked together on the anthemic ‘Kutcher’ in 2018, the debut features Reid-produced singles ‘Here It Comes Again’, ‘The Races’ and ‘Fishing’ while also featuring a re-recording of early single and live favourite ‘Camel Crew’ - until now, only available on 2018’s Winter Nets.
Release Date: Friday 3rd April 2020
