Hockey to re-release "Mind Chaos" this summer


Hockey, a four-piece dance-rock band from Portland, are getting set to re-release their debut album, Mind Chaos, this summer after having self released the record last year. The group's infectious pop sound takes the funk and danceability of classic soul and pop music and combines it with synths, drum machine, and a gritty rock 'n' roll attitude that make songs like the first single, "Too Fake," such a compelling listen. These guys seem poised to conquer the indie scene, so do yourself a favor and get familiar with them now.

You can watch the video for "Too Fake" below and you should head over to the band's MySpace to hear a few more tracks. Also, check out this article on guardian.co.uk in which Hockey are quite literally listed as the next big thing.
