We last covered Cub Sport back in June, and since then they’ve performed all around the world, including here in Manchester. They still had time to whip up a new audio/visual EP called 333, which features the track Hearts In Halves.
Focussing on the ecstasies and agonies of love, Tim Nelson plays the protagonist in both the song and the video. And what a song! Stimulating the senses as well as the emotions, it paints the most vivid pictures as it pulls at your heartstrings. The track takes a soothing yet yearning approach to detailing the ups and downs that can happen in love, or on a night out when two hearts seem destined to become one, if only for a moment. Or maybe longer.
“333 is made up of three songs that fit together to conjure a feeling of deep and healing euphoria.” says frontman Tim Nelson. “It sweeps you up in all-encompassing hypnotic sonics; the chordal and harmonic combinations feel like a pang in your chest – there are forces of beauty, sorrow, growth, pain, and joy. It’s uplifting, renewing and feels good in a holistic way. This release feels very significant. It feels like it has the energy of a whole album – there’s a message and a feeling within these songs. It’s powerful, it’s palpable, it feels GOOD and that’s why it needed to exist.”
Hearts In Halves is out now and available to stream or download on all major platforms including Tidal. Be sure to check the band out over on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to keep up with news about this unique video and song cycle.
December 17th sees the release of City of Angels, whilst December 24th sees Air complete the trilogy.
