INDIE heroes Sports Team have returned with a feverish new single called ‘R Entertainment’.

We haven’t heard much from the band since their 2020 debut album ‘Deep Down Happy’ – but now they’re back to announce it’s follow-up ‘Gulp!’.

Previewed by this new single, the band say ‘R Entertainment’ is about “the packaging down of all human experience into entertainment, prompted by the infinite scroll through social feeds and the manic formlessness of the images we are hit with every day. Graphic news interrupted by ads for season 17 of The Bodyguard, news as a rubbernecking, passively waiting for the next drop of horror as we flick through recipes.:

While the DNA of the band hasn’t changed – the track is packed full of dizzying hooks, feverish guitars and bounding energy – the band shift their gaze from idle suburbia and passing characters to more observant matters. In this case, it’s the effect of technology and how are minds are being desensitised to all the everyday horrors unfolding before us. It’s still every bit as fun and energetic, but it also marks a growth point for the outfit.
