Ottawa's dad sports announce their signing to Grand Jury Music with the video for their nostalgic lofi single “name & place." dad sports have been methodically cultivating a dedicated audience since 2018, putting out self-produced indie bangers one after the other. Their stellar work eventually caught the ear of New York’s Grand Jury Music, who will be releasing a series of new dad sports singles over the coming months.
"name & place" fuses the 16th-note urgency of classic shoegaze with elements of bedroom pop, blending warm synths and drum machine loops with an understated and infectious melody. The result is a pop confection of equal parts high energy and emotional gravity, as dad sports capture a fleeting moment of appreciation with the hypnotic combination of electric guitar, softly-layered vocals, and nostalgic lyricism.
