HOCKEY Premieres “Calling Back” Music Video Today On & Announces A Summer U.S. Tour!

dion/ June 20, 2013





“…calming and resounding vocals are poignantly complemented by Reynolds’ expressive bass lines, as well as antique drum machines and keys.” – Filter Magazine

“The record is eclectic: soulful indie new wave spattered with a buffet of melodic whimsies and playful beats. There are no bad tracks; just a range of good to very good. The feel is often predominantly ’80s, but with a lot of creative turns.” – MXDWN

“Hockey are from Portland, but they sure sound like they’re from New York. Well, they sound like a mix of popular New York sounds from the last decade– like the precise midpoint between the Strokes and LCD Soundsystem.” – Pitchfork

Brooklyn-based band Hockey is excited to premiere their music video for the single “Calling Back” today on! watch here:


The track is from their new album Wyeth IS, which is available digitally now and will be released physically on June 25th.  PRESS HERE to order the album.

In 2009, the band released their impressive debut album Mind Chaos which earned them performances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Late with Jools Holland, and Live From Abbey Road. Although there have been several changes with the band since, Ben Wyeth and Jerm Reynoldsremain true to their love of vintage electronic beats. With Wyeth IS, the duo spent 22 months writing and recording the album in isolation at a secluded location in upstate New York.
