Morning guys! Time for some groovy rock music! Australian surf-rock duo Hockey Dad have dropped their brand new single I Wanna Be Everybody, the second cut  taken from their sophomore album Blend Inn set for release on February 9th via Manchester Indie label LAB Records. The song is super cool with awesome guitar riffs. Stream it below!


Speaking about the song band member Zac Stephenson said,
It’s about being a bit uncomfortable in scenarios where people just seem so relaxed and worry-free.
This self-reflective take on the issue of feeling anxious in social situations where everyone else seems to be totally at ease is paradoxically wrapped up in trademark scruffy, sunny riffs.

Billy Fleming (drums) and Stephenson (guitar, vox) have come a long way since sneaking underage into their local dive venue to catch their favourite bands. Once able to get their own regular slots they quickly built an ever-growing following, before releasing a debut EP Dreamin’ in 2014, then 2016’s acclaimed debut album Boronia. The 18 months since Boronia’s release has seen the duo tour extensively through Australia, before heading out to North America to take in SXSW, jump on a Canadian tour with Dune Rats, play shows in the UK and Europe before finally taking in some of their home country’s biggest venues with the iconic Wavves.

This stretch of playing live, and the reaction to their debut record has allowed Hockey Dad to ally the youthful electricity they possess in abundance with renewed sense of perspective, and an expanded mind-set.

Landing in Seattle, the recording of Blend Inn began with renowned audio engineer and producer John Goodmanson (Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney, Cloud Nothings) at Robert Lang Studios. The studios, supposedly haunted, echo with their iconic past - housing many of rock’s legends over its time, The Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, Death Cab For Cutie, Alice In Chains, for example, but most notably Nirvana, who recorded their last single inside - the mic used by Kurt Cobain still hanging in tribute. Here, Hockey Dad found a home away from home - immortalising their time in the album artwork, which depicts the house in a film photo captured by Fleming.
