SXSW 2023 Ones To Watch

All this week, KUTX profiles the Ones To Watch—seven must-see artists at SXSW 2023. Hosted by Jody Denberg and produced by Art Levy.

Breakthrough British band Sports Team formed in 2016. The UK post-punkers have since released two EPs, Winter Nets and Keep Walking!, prior to their 2020 Mercury Prize-nominated debut album Deep Down Happy.
And now Sports Team’s highly anticipated sophomore album, Gulp!, is out and it’s been a #1 Vinyl Album and #3 Album in the UK. Gulp! features the song “The Drop” as heard on KUTX. Of the song, the group says, “It’s questioning a constant striving for achievement and never really enjoying the moments.” The sextet certainly seems to be enjoying the moments that comprise Gulp! and we’re looking forward to seeing and hearing how they replicate its energy in a live setting.

Catch Sports Team on Thursday, March 16 live on KUTX at 10 a.m., performing from Scholz Garten.

Support for KUTX at SXSW 2023 comes from PNC Bank and Chattanooga Whiskey
