Music videoEdit

"Sometimes"' music video was released on 5 October 2018. It was directed by Brittney Scott and has Tim Nelson perform the track in close-up with the visuals going in and out of focus, while a double exposure of a landscape emerges.[4]


Hayden Davies from PileRats said "'Sometimes' debuts a new pop-centric side of Cub Sport, uniting their signature indie-pop charm with a euphoric, 90s-esque synth line and Nelson's bright vocals, which this time around, feels a lot more confident and self-assured."[5]
