Remember Sports

Remember Sports started off like a firecracker. Their first couple albums, back when they were still just going by Sports, were short blasts of manic energy. Lead singer Carmen Perry barreled through breakups and heartache with a breathless fervency. The band packaged early adulthood anxieties into hooks that were irrepressibly catchy and often dementedly funny. On one of their best songs, “Clean Jeans,” Perry sneers at a partner who is more well-informed and put together than her: “You’re jerking off to Al Jazeera and making your bed/ And I could be at CrossFit like you but I’d rather be dead.” Messiness was something to aspire to in those early songs, a way to deflect judgement over not growing up fast enough. It’s an attitude that made for some infectious songs but also felt unsustainable.

Philly-based indie rockers Remember Sports were a Stereogum Band To Watch back in 2015, when they were just known as Sports. This spring, they’re coming back with the new album Like A Stone. The band announced the follow-up to 2018’s Slow Buzz by releasing the fizzy melodic rager “Pinky Ring,” a song that called back to classic indie and classic pop-punk. Today, the band has dropped another one, and it goes in a different direction.
