Directed by Kris Rimmer (Matt Maltese, Big Moon) “Kutcher” sees West London’s finest swapping grimy city haunts for wholesome country surroundings.
The Harlesden based 6-piece have gone from strength to strength these last months, morphing from inconspicuous indie band to razor-sharp guitar pop outfit with an anarchic live show to match.
Stories of provincial boredom and the millennial professional provide a humorous insight into Sports Team, a band who (unlike their contemporaries over the river) are very content in their middle class idle and wear it as a badge of honour.
“Kutcher”, a homage to television heartthrobs, sits more in the Beastie Boys with guitars camp inhabited by Only Real and Rat Boy than Pavement and Squeeze but is nonetheless a stellar tune filled with their trademark irony and witty observations. The video nods to previous EP Winter Nets with everyone donning whites on the steps of a cricket clubhouse. A very welcome sight indeed.
