ALBUM NEWS: Sports Team - 'Deep Down Happy'

Absolutely obsessed with Here's The Thing from Sports Team at the minute. SO good. They're a Camberwell-based six-piece who have had a bit of a word of mouth shoot to stardom over the last couple of years, pulling in sell-out crowds before they had released any music. Two EPs later, they've earned themselves a reputation as an exciting young band, not quite sounding like any of their contemporaries. I'm mesmerised by the lyric video for latest single Here's The Thing, which gives you a little sense of quite how raucous their live shows might be...

They've just announced that their debut album Deep Down Happy is due for release on Island Records on 3rd April. Talking about the album, frontman Alex Rice says that "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."
