    Hunny

    Alternative Rock

    HUNNY is a band from Newbury Park, CA who made a name for themselves in early 2015
    releasing their debut single “Cry for Me" which was met with wide acclaim from bloggers
    and fans alike. Three years and several releases later, they've proven that they're much
    more than just one song. Their catalog has amassed over 14 million Spotify streams
    globally to date in addition to selling out rooms across the US. HUNNY is front man and
    guitarist Jason Yarger, guitarist Jake Goldstein, bassist and keyboardist Kevin Grimmett,
    and drummer Joey Anderson.

    Best mates first, band mates second – the heart of Hockey Dad has always existed in the friendship between duo Zach Stephenson and Billy Fleming, who first met in early childhood, growing up two doors apart in the unassuming, laid back coastal town of Windang, NSW. The foundations for the band began in early 2013, where an underage Fleming and Stephenson would sneak into their local live music haunt to catch their favourite bands. Eventually they were granted regular slots playing to an ever-growing crew of enthusiastic friends turned fans, and quickly picking up the attention of local Wollongong indie label Farmer & The Owl. In 2014 they released their Dreamin’ EP and were finalists in the triple j unearthed high competition.

    Indie Rock

    Crockpot Pop. It’s not a term you’ll be instantly familiar with, but it is a somewhat perfect descriptor of Philadelphia quartet Queen of Jeans. Intentionally tongue-in-cheek, the self-ascribed term was coined by the band to chronicle the haphazard nature of their core ingredients. They are a slew of sounds and influences in a juxtaposition that somehow strikes balance, sculpted over time into the refined and tenacious outfit they are today. 

    Prior to releasing their self-titled debut EP in early 2016, founding members Miriam Devora, Matheson Glass, and Nina Scotto had all played in other bands, but as had been all too common a practice a few years ago, were often accessorized and handed a tambourine instead of a guitar. The three visualized a new project on their own terms, and finalized their lineup with drummer Patrick Wall. Queen of Jeans instantly took root, earning praise for their aforementioned debut that showcased their glowing eye for detail. Along the way, they garnered attention from the likes of Wild Honey Pie, who called it a “welcoming beacon in the night” and Clash magazine, who labeled it a “riot of attitude and colour.” 

    Overwhelmed by the positive response, they vigorously developed their live set, testing it out in their hometown and on the road DIY touring, which eventually led to bigger opportunities. Those included WXPN's XPoNential Music Festival as well as Made in America and SXSW, all of which was rounded off by a full US tour alongside heavyweights Balance & Composure and From Indian Lakes - no small feat for a band with just one EP to its name. 

    Honing their sound through those experiences, the band crafted their debut LP with palpable care and consideration in the time since their first release. The result is Dig Yourself, out March 30th via their new home of Topshelf Records. It is a marked leap forward, a decadent and decisive nine-track record that immediately feels like a coming-of-age. 

    “The more we played, the surer of ourselves we became, but we also continued to encounter a lot of misogyny, “ the band expressed. “After a while, walking into venues to be greeted with comments like, ‘get your hand stamped if you’re the band’s girlfriends’, gets tired. But we didn’t let it deter us, if anything it continued to ignite a new, more assertive energy that has only continued to empower us. With Dig Yourself, we were finding the confidence and willingness to share more vulnerable and emotionally honest music, which served as both a cathartic exercise as well as our call to arms. 

    “This album is really the story arc of a relationship, be it with another person or simply the relationship you have with yourself,” they continued. “We chose an album name with a split meaning - to ‘dig yourself’ could mean to love yourself; rally behind yourself, or on the flip side, ‘dig yourself’ is a motion to try a little harder, find what’s there beneath the surface, explore your behavior and figure out what you’re actively trying to reveal to yourself.” 

    Dig Yourself is as much a reflection of inter-and-intrapersonal relationships as it is the story of the band’s evolution by its own right, exploring the ups and downs of life in its assurance, annoyance, paranoia, resignation, and ultimately re-evaluation.
