Cub Sport drop ‘Break Me Down’ remix with Northeast Party House and Mallrat

After teasing it earlier this week

Cub Sport have released the Northeast Party House remix of ‘Break Me Down’, their collaboration with Mallrat from latest album ‘Like Nirvana’.

Earlier this week, Cub Sport had announced a remix of the track was on the horizon on Instagram, tagging both Mallrat and Northeast Party House.

“Break Me Down (with Mallrat) has made a lot of people cry and now it’s time to make them dance at the same time thanks to party-pop perfectionists Northeast Party House,” lead singer and songwriter Tim Nelson said of the track in a press statement.


Listen to the remix below:

The original version of ‘Break Me Down’ arrived back in July alongside the rest of ‘Like Nirvana’. It’s not the first time the band have collaborated with Mallrat – the fellow Brisbanite featured on ‘Video’ from Cub Sport’s self-titled 2019 album.

In a five-star review of ‘Like Nirvana’, NME called the album “an unflinching document of trauma and growth” that saw Nelson “building his own church where queer love, begetting self-love, is something sacred and unassailable.”

“Stadium-sized glory might be painfully out of reach right now, for reasons beyond their control – but on ‘Like Nirvana’, Cub Sport make a compelling case for post-pandemic superstardom.”


Over the weekend, Cub Sport premiered a full live album performance of ‘Like Nirvana’ on their YouTube channel. Nelson commented ahead of its premiere that performing the album live felt “like magic”.

“When we shot this performance, I could feel that connectedness, that ‘in the zone’ feeling from shows that I’d been missing so much. I’m excited for viewers to experience that feeling too,” they said.
