Hockey "Learn To Lose" Video

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Wed, Nov 18, 2009 at 8:35 AM

My biggest concern on the seemingly overnight ascent of Hockey is how this band will follow up their evolution from basement act to UK—if not global—pop darlings. Judging by "Learn To Lose," their new UK single and seven-inch, Hockey will be more than fine.

Equally as infectious as the finest moments of Mind Chaos, the single benefits greatly from a loose instrumental backing, well-placed female vocals, and the carefree delivery of frontman Benjamin Grubin. The song is great, but I think his hat is worse than the headbands. What does this band have against hair?
