Before they were known as Cub Sport, this fun-loving five-piece were fittingly called Cub Scouts. After a small legal dispute with Scouts Australia, though, the band had to bring an end to their former name. Happily, however, they have moved on from the situation and appear as optimistic as ever before. In fact, the band went ahead with the release of their new EP, Paradise, and as you’ll be happy to hear, it totally lives up to its name.
Released earlier this week, the EP’s title-track is without a question a strong opener. It’s not just any piece of indie-pop, though: the melodies are brimming with happiness and the chorus is anything but plain. Just listening to that piano riff puts a spring in my step. But as you can see from the video, I’m not the only one that’s feeling its peppy beat.
As you might imagine, the group have channeled all of the song’s playful energy into the music video, which sees the band having a little fun-in-the-sun. If you’re a fan of lens flares and underwater shots, this is the video for you.
Watch above and let us know what you think of this fantastic new single.
