UK Indie Shooting Stars Sports Team Remind Us About Live Music’s Power On “Going Soft”
Whoever has witnessed Sports Team live in concert, knows that singer Alex Rice is going literally crazy while performing. If you haven’t had the chance to catch the mayhem of the London-via-Cambridge six-piece live, can now slightly imagine what this epiphany feels like. The video for their latest single Going Soft shows the band on- and off-stage on their pre-Corona UK tour. There’s footage of crowdsurfing teenagers, a spitting Rice, as well as ever-growing venues. The single itself presents the feel-good indie pop that made us fall in love with the British weirdos a while ago. It also serves as a brillant reminder of how dearly we all miss venues, crowdsurfing and live music in general. As Rice stated in a recent interview about the single: Hopefully the whole thing is a reminder of how good live music can be, that if you’re a kid who should be going to their first show about now then live music isn’t an acoustic cover on IG Live, it’s something really special. We couldn’t agree more. The anticipated Sports TeamDeep Down Happy arrives on June 19, at last!
