Watch Sports Team release new track ‘The Drop’

Taken from their upcoming second album ‘Gulp!’.

With their new album ‘Gulp!’ now set to arrive on 23rd September, Sports Team are sharing new track ‘The Drop’.

Speaking about the song, the band say, “It’s questioning a constant striving for achievement, never really enjoying the moments and ‘Katie dying waiting for the right time to retire’. Today the internet told me they’ve found ‘pits on the moon where humans could comfortably live and work’, brilliant.”

Working with director, filmmaker and architect A.T. Mann for the accompanying video, Mann adds, “When I stepped through the sonic journey of The Drop I dreamed of a poet caught in his own urban web of city lights, stuck there as the mind is being lost, knowing there is only one way out – letting it all go. Letting all the nonsense boundaries drop, taking the one leap into the unknown like the soul of the acrobat about to fly – or fall – stepping along the highwire of the one important quest - Creation. This reminded me of a beatnik poem by Laurence Ferenghetti called ‘Constantly Risking Absurdity’.”
