Sports Get A Good Look World Tour | Berlin

For Sports, it’s the intricacies of their lifelong friendship, the triumphs and shortcomings of growing up and the experiences they’ve gained along the way that inform their worldview and, in turn, their music. Growing up on the outskirts of Tulsa, Oklahoma, life for Cale and Christian revolved around watching MTV and going to church. « We’ve been making music and releasing it under different names since we were 13 years old » they share. They came up with the name Sports almost a decade later. In choosing the name Sports, Cale and Christian showed reverence for their parents. « They are big sports fans. It’s like fulfilling a childhood dream to be in the NBA. »
Musically inspired by soothing melodies, images of youthful idylls of yesteryear and sun-drenched funk synths. Her sophisticated, mind-expanding arrangements are warm and enveloping, creating a world where David Bowie, The Beach Boys and The Clash collide.

Sports first introduced themselves with their 2015 debut single « You Are The Right One ». Their debut project Naked All The Time (2015) and their follow up single, People Can’t Stop Chillin (2016) delivered further critically acclaimed singles including: ‘Panama’.

In 2018, the band released their first full-length album, Everyone’s Invited, which received praise from Pitchfork and Pigeons & Planes.
To date, Sports have amassed over 100 million streams, an impressive feat for a band staying true to their independent roots and DIY ethos. After spending the last three years shuttling between Los Angeles and Norman, they find themselves back in their hometown with a whole new perspective and impressions. This perspective is evident in their upcoming studio album, Get A Good Look. Unlike their previous albums, « Get A Good Look » comes in two parts. « We didn’t set out to release the albums in 2 parts, but with the pandemic we had to get creative, » Cale shares. « It gives us a chance to work on the music and visuals at a more methodical pace. »
In May 2022, we can look forward to hearing the new album live on stage! Tickets are on sale now at all known ticket outlets!

In 2011 the band from Detroit (around Joe Casey (vocals) / Greg Ahle (guitar) / Scott Davidson (bass) and drummer Alex Leonard) stood in the recording studio together for the first time. The result was « No Passion All Technique » and cost only four hours and a case of beer.

« No Passion All Technique » is sold out and sold out shortly after its original release on Urinal Cake Records in October 2012. Intellectual, heartbreaking, funny – a random tour de force that has also become an unlikely collector’s item. « My Memory is shot, » says Casey, « but looking back now, I appreciate how raw and spontaneous it was. There are tons of flaws in it, and it wasn’t because we planned it. The first album is never really the best but I’m glad the album didn’t suck in the end. It opened the door to what we wanted to do later. ”

Their current EP « Consolation » was released in 2018.

HMLTD • Berlin

HMLTD
Special Guest: Amigdala + Show Boy

28.02.2020 Urban Spree
Doors: 20:00 / Start: 21:00
Tickets 14€, + fees / At the door 17€

As anyone who has been in attendance at one of their live shows thus far will testify – where the venues are decorated from floor to ceiling with glitter, doll parts, glamorous pictures and whatever else the six members of the band have dreamt up in the days before – HMLTD are a band of grand ambitions.

“Our plan has always been to connect on a much, much bigger scale than this,” says singer Henry. “We want to make big pop songs that get on the radio, in the papers, we want to be pop stars. And I don’t see why that is something that we should be embarrassed about.”

“That’s why we put so much into our videos, and our aesthetic. That’s why we signed to Sony, and not to an indie label. We have always thought of ourselves as a pop group, not an indie band.” adds guitarist James.

So, they connected with the famous Producer from Los Angeles, Justin Tranter (worked with Selena Gomez, Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears and Justin Bieber) for their new Album.
The first fruits of this new collaborative way of working will be ‘Pictures Of You’: a giant, titanic pop song with undeniable, super-infectious hooks that, rather than sounding like the work of Justin Tranter, still bears all the unmistakable hallmarks of an HMLTD creation. “And that is one of the more straight up songs,” says James. “The others are quite avant grade and strange, and totally unlike anything you’d hear on the radio at the moment, but still very pop, which is very exciting.”
“Basically,” Henry concludes, “we just want HMLTD to matter on a massive scale.”
