Childhood friends Cale Chronister and Christian Theriot have come to realize that life can change at any second. Perspectives are reshaped, relationships rise or fall, and home is anywhere you want it to be. For indie-pop duo Sports, it’s the intricacies of their lifelong friendship, the victories, and shortcomings of growing up, and the lessons learned along the way that have influenced their worldview. Growing up on the outskirts of Tulsa, Oklahoma, life for Cale and Christian revolved around watching MTV and going to church. The pair first met in middle school and formed an instant connection with both seeking to break out of the conformity of their quaint small-town upbringing.
Check out “The Look,” a vibrant and avant-garde new single from Sports. A syncopated and funky bass line draws us in while hypnotic vocals cut in with a modern feel and disco design. “The Look” is just as catchy as it is creative as we find Sports on point and melodically insightful like LCD Soundsystem jamming with M83.
‘The Look’ was inspired by a comment a stranger made to me while I was out eating lunch. He interrupted me and asked who my agent was, assuming that I was a model. And then wanted to help represent me. I just kind of laughed because it seemed like such an LA cliché. But he was serious and told me, ‘You’ve got the look of the moment,” says Chronister.
