Making Waves: Sports Team

This week, wonky indie types Sports Team are under our Making Waves spotlight. Find out more below, and spot the England shirt in their press photo...

KEY TRACK: Kutcher
LABEL: Nice Swan Records
MANAGEMENT: Good Life Music
TWITTER: @SportsTeam_

WHO: Singer Alex Rice leads a six-piece (or sometimes more) band that includes his former university mates Henry, Ben, Rob, Oli and Alex.

WHAT: Theatrical indie. Scruffy and over the top, imagine a dishevelled Jarvis Cocker fronting Pavement.

WHERE: The band met at Cambridge, but now they live in Harlesden, North West London, near the McVitie’s biscuit factory.


So far, Sports Team have mainly told their story on stage, their gigs grabbing the attention of indie kids and the music biz alike – Annie Mac told listeners, “Sports Team should be your new favourite band.”


Yes. Songs filled with imagery of drab Britain and bookish ennui, brought to life at wonky gigs where it feels like anything might happen.


They play the Scala on September 19. But look out for last minute gigs between now and then.
