Sport - 2014 - Bon Voyage

Sport is a four piece emo band from Lyons, France. Bon Voyage is their second LP. Sport play an energetic, punked up brand of emo garnering comparisons to bands Braid, Small Brown Bike, Algernon Cadwallader and Crash Of Rhinos. The singer's voice reminds at time of a gruffer lead singer of The Reptilian, a surprisingly apt comparison. Sport run the gambit from indie rock to twinkly emo over to melodic post-hardcore and back into some melodic emo without even blinking an eye. Outside of You Blew It! and Posture & The Grizzly this is one of the best emo albums I've heard yet this year. Highly recommended. I would list my favourite songs but that's basically all of them.
