Growing up on the stages of small bars in Wollongong since mid-2013, the duo of Zach Stephenson (guitar/vocals) and Billy Fleming (drums) began to grow their following outside their home city with the release of their debut ep ‘Dreamin’ in June 2014. Produced by Tom Iansek (Big Scary, #1 Dads) and the first release for newly formed Leisure Coast label Farmer & The Owl, ‘I Need A Woman’, the lead single from the five track ep earned the band rotation on Triple J and FBi Radio as well as plenty of love across the web.

Growing interest in the band led to national tours alongside the likes of Bad/Dreems and DZ Deathrays, and they were named the winners of Triple J’s Unearthed competition, landing them a spot on Byron Bay’s Falls Festival over the new year. ‘Can’t Have Them’ is the brand new single from Hockey Dad and kicks off a year release wise for the band that will include a 7”, a vinyl release of their ep ‘Dreamin’ for Record Store Day and finally in the back end of the year, the release of what will be an anticipated debut album.
