We’ve been infatuated with Australian surf-rock duo Hockey Dad for a while, make sure to check back with us next week for the album review, and we’re excited to see that their newest single is I Wanna Be Everybody. It’s a paradoxical track because of the sun-drenched guitar riffs but it’s a song that packs a punch with a heavy topic that is extremely relatable for anyone struggling with social anxiety. That self-reflectiveness when you’re surrounded by people and friends yet you have a panging feeling like you don’t belong and like you’re an outsider, looking in on everybody else even if you’re in a room full of people. It’s something we’ve all dealt with or still deal with, myself included, and it’s good to see a band embrace the taboo topic of mental health. One half of the duo, Zac Stephenson had this to say about the track “it’s about being a bit uncomfortable in scenarios where people just seem so relaxed and worry-free.” Watch the video below.

The most important thing to know about me is that I'm a melomaniac and shameless fangirl. I am addicted to concerts, they are my sanctuary and safe haven. When I'm on the front row on the barricade of a concert... I feel that I am truly home. I'm also a proud and happy vinyl crate-digger. Whether it's searching for vinyl at flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops... I am a sucker for the crackling of a good record when the needle drops on a turntable. I am a true Cancer with Moon in Cancer. Social Media: @youthquakermimi
