Tim Nelson of Cub Sport’s ultimate playlist

Much like Frank Ocean (see below), Tim Nelson knows there’s strength in occasionally riding solo. In honour of our ‘Unrecognised’ Issue, the Cub Sport frontman shared his thoughts on going incognito – and the songs he wants everyone to know.

The upside of anonymity is …
Being free from any expectations or limitations you feel are tied to your identity.

My favourite way to spend time alone is …
Writing and recording music! I love running and listening to music too – that’s my favourite way of listening to new demos and developing ideas out of the studio.

I overcome shyness by …
Being vulnerable. I feel like there’s a power in being your whole self and owning the parts of yourself you’re scared to share.

The one thing I want to share with the world is …
Love! Love is such a powerful force. My life has changed a lot since I started letting love in and learning to love myself. I know how the struggle feels and I wanna help bring light to the darkness.

The five songs I want everyone to know …
Cub Sport – As Long As You’re Happy
Frank Ocean – Solo
Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place (the live version off the Stop Making Sense album)
Mallrat – Groceries
The Flaming Lips – Do You Realize??
