The group, woh emerged as a young indie band in the early-2010s, have amassed more than 250 million streams, ARIA Platinum and Gold Certified singles, and an ARIA #2 album. They’ve played the AFL Grand Final and placed in the triple j Hottest 100 five times.

Cub Sport’s music is entirely self-released and blends pop classicism with experimental and electronic elements. Their new single ‘Replay’ is a propulsive house track, rippling with waves of sinewy sub-bass. ‘Replay’ was recorded in Melbourne with Styalz Fuego and Natalie Dunn, and it aims to capture an interplay between human and heavenly.

“‘Replay’ is about moving forward. Feelings aren’t as simple as we sometimes make out – you can long for something and not want it at the same time, you can love something but outgrow it,” front-person Tim Nelson says. “I think it’s about shifting from longing for something to feeling free. But it also doesn’t have to be that deep – It’s a fun pop song and that’s how I want it to be enjoyed too.”

Meanwhile, the track’s music video is filled with jarring, artistic cuts and muted colour schemes. It explores themes of yearning and connection, as Tim attempt to break free from a loop of a life on repeat, in search of a reunion with partner/band member Sam Netterfield – almost moments away but almost always out of reach.

‘Replay’ is out now.
