Sports Team - Margate
Published: 10:48 am, August 06, 2018Words: Jake Hawkes.

It's been sunny forever, hasn't it? Sometimes when we open the fridge, we genuinely consider climbing inside. Maybe there's a better way, a nice trip down to the seaside, ice creams and swimming. Sounds just the ticket.

Sports Team have had the same idea and duly took a trip out of the capital. A coach trip later they're ready to share the results with us on new track ‘Margate' (no prizes for guessing which beach they visited).

In three minutes of indie sunshine, the band take us through all pleasures of a weekend away, some slightly more niche than others. Leaning out of the sunroof, sleeping outside and a nice view ruined by rhododendrons. No mention of getting bugs in your mouth, waking up freezing cold or getting rhododendron-based hayfever, but maybe we're living too relentlessly in the real world. The important point is that ‘Margate' is an absolute banger of a song, one that deserves to be blasting from every car stereo in the traffic jam on the way to the beach.

It comes with a video shot on location too, so you can watch frontman Alex Rice dancing like Mick Jagger in front of a variety of seaside sights if that's your kind of thing, which it absolutely should be. Here's to another decade or two of sunburn and pub garden pints.
