Sports Team - Keep Walking! EP
Published: 2:27 pm, March 07, 2019Words: Stephen Ackroyd.

In truth, Sports Team don’t seem like the most obvious of so-hot-right-now buzz bands. For a start off, they actually seem to be having fun. That’s the spirit that runs throughout their latest EP, ‘Keep Walking!’ - so sure in itself it even throws in a bit of exuberant punctuation for good measure.

From the fizzing stomp of ‘M5’ to ‘Ski Lifts’ and its namecheck of Aperol Spritz, frontman Alex Rice is quickly becoming a legitimate indie legend in his own postcode, his strutting stage presence almost audible on record. Even when turning down the tempo, ‘Casper’ drips with personality, while ‘Get Along’- yet another future classic that, in passing, provides the EP its title - shows this is a band that deliver at any and all velocities.

Sports Team may not be following the industry tick sheet for kicking up buzz, but that’s only because they’ve found a better route to victory.
