Reminiscent of Depeche Mode’s mid-career work. These catchy tunes are disguising dark feelings the full length debut from Brisbane, Australian pop-rock four-piece Cub Sport has been criminally overlooked here and in the states.  The album tackles the exploitation of women (“It Kills Me”) as well as the complicated feelings of making music  (“Come On Mess Me Up”) and of being in a relationship (“I’m On Fire”).  Despite the tough subject matter, the entire album seems effortless.  Tim Nelson’s angelic voice and his bandmates’ supporting harmonies and musical layers present new surprises with every listen.
