Childhood friends Zach Stephenson and Billy Fleming parlayed their love of surfing, skating, and rock & roll into the jangly fuzz-pop duo Hockey Dad.
Formed in 2013 in the coastal town of Windang in New South Wales, Australia, Hockey Dad emerged a year later with the five-song Dreamin' EP, a sunny, melodic affair that projects a laid-back attitude even at its most raucous. They soon signed with Brooklyn indie Kanine Records which issued their debut LP, Boronia, in the summer of 2016. Working with producer John Goodmanson (Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney) in Seattle, Hockey Dad returned in 2018 with the still sprightly but slightly more inward-gazing Blend Inn. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
