Cub Sport Take On Kanye West

August 16, 2016 BY Nettwerk

Brisbane indie rock band Cub Sport surprised everyone when they tackled Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam” for Australian radio network Triple J’s “Like A Version” series. The on-air hosts and audience were blown away by the band’s precisely arranged and perfectly harmonized take on the already intricate track. When asked how they nailed the harmonies, the band admitted that they used a 12-hour drive from Salt Lake City to San Diego during their U.S. tour earlier this summer to practice the vocal arrangement acapella style until they had it perfected.

The band has kept busy since their U.S. run with select dates opening for The 1975 in Australia. Watch the video for the track “Come On Mess Me Up” off their debut album This Is Our Vice (March 2016) here:
