Sports Debut Album Released
Over the weekend, Sports released their debut self-titled LP on Crash Symbols
Featuring a few previously released singles and mostly new material, this 8 track album is packed full of some serious goodies.
Since I first heard the band last year, Sports has definitely been hard at work refining their sound and honing their unique style.
On their initial release, the Seattle trio takes you on a wild psychedelic ride with their blissed out melodies and smooth beats. The album is filled with haunting electropop, longing introspective lyrics, mournful vocals, and a whole lot of 80s inspired synths.
Particular standouts include “<3?,” “To Catch A Thief,” and “Runaway.”
