Hockey’s “Too Fake” Video

I really like this band and this song and have played it on my podcast. They are playing SXSW this year in Austin if your going and want to catch them live.

Their debut album, Mind Chaos, due midyear, is likely to be big, so see them now while they’re still playing small rooms.” – Time Out New York

Watch the video for “Too Fake” by Hockey here:
