Sports Team are back with their brand new single, ‘Happy (God’s Own Country)’

It comes alongside a Wicker Man-inspired new video.

Dork readers’ reigning band of the year, Sports Team have returned with a brand new single, ‘Happy (God’s Own Country)’.

Released as what’s described in an accompanying press release as “a summer-of-hope-anthem” intended to “celebrate the easing of lockdown measures”, it comes alongside a flashy Wicker Man-inspired video, which you can check out below.

The track is taken from Sports Team’s forthcoming limited edition b-sides and rarities collection ‘Plant Test’, available only on vinyl via independent UK retailers.

“We recorded this at the end of last year at a time when it was hard not to feel exhausted by the scale of insincerity everywhere,” the band explain. “It’s a sort of Cold War Steve collage, a cut and paste diorama of cronyism, cottagecore and window-dressed Toryism, with the frustrated energy of live performance without a stage.”

Sports Team are set to hit the road again this summer for a whole bunch of festivals, before heading out on their own headline run this October and November.
