dad sports is a three piece bedroom pop band formed in the early hours of the morning, exploring the Ottawa suburbs with only friendship and music to guide them. The band’s sound is notably lo-fi and soft, yet equally high energy and emotionally potent. The group sets themselves apart by their use of electronic drum machines and softly layered vocals to create a warm and nostalgic sound. dad sports is Miguel Plante on vocals and guitar, Keith McDonald on drums and Alex Keyes on bass. 

I AM JUST A BOY LEAVE ME ALONE !!! follows a series of singles which caught the ear of Spotify, who named the band to their 2021 Radar Artist to Watch lists in both the US & Canada. At press, the band has already earned advance accolades from NPR, FADER, Stereogum & Paste, while getting early spins at Sirius XMU, charting at college radio, and landing on the radar of Annie Mac at BBC Radio 1 and Lauren Laverne at BBC 6 Music in the UK. The EP comes amidst a particularly fertile moment for the young band, who are hard at work on a debut full-length for Grand Jury Music.
