Australian band, Hockey Dad, have released their brand new single ‘Itch’.
The duo, made up of Billy Fleming and Zach Stephenson, will release their eagerly anticipated new album Brain Candy on May 29th and will follow that up with a string of UK tour dates.
“The demo for ‘Itch’ started off as a delicate, droned out kind of song,” Stephenson explains. “As we started recording it in the studio and adding drums and guitars we realised the potential it had for an epic fuzzed ballad so we ran with it. It’s definitely the most non-Hockey Dad song we have ever recorded.”
He added: “The ‘Itch’ video shoot was unlike anything we’ve experienced before, we had a full-day shoot with costume designers, production crew, and makeup.
“We were coated in thick body paint and face masks during the steamy LA day while skating, but it was worth it to creep people out who were walking by us.”
