Sports Team - Deep Down Happy
Deep Down Happy is the highly anticipated debut album from Sports Team.
Here’s the thing…Sports Team are a band of six singular characters who have been variously described as one of the most raucous, electrifying and chaotic acts in the UK. Deep Down Happy follows the acclaimed EPs, 'Winter Nets' and 'Keep Walking!' and is their first release on the legendary Island Records label.
Sports Team came up on the back of word of mouth live hype, drawing round the block queues to chaotic early gigs at The Five Bells and Moth Club before releasing any music. Recording their first EP (Winter Nets) in a converted Timber yard in Hammersmith, the band have consistently set themselves apart from the acts they came up playing with, showing an intoxicating ambition, and their debut full album Deep Down Happy, looks set to deliver on all bold claims, and confirm their place at the head of a group of young guitar acts.
Talking about the record, charismatic frontman Alex Rice says: “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.”
‘Here’s The Thing’ is the first Sports Team track to feature guitarist and principal songwriter Rob Knaggs on vocals, with the two friends and protagonists forming an unruly, and utterly charming pairing.
