BIGSOUND Spotlight: Hockey Dad

Zach Stephenson and Billy Fleming are two best friends that play surf rock as Hockey Dad. The duo are one of the 130+ artists that will be playing at the BIGSOUND Festival in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.

Hockey Dad’s debut album Boronia was released last year and the two have their sophomore album in the works for 2018.

From Boronia is “Can’t Have Them”, offering up a snapshot of Hockey Dad’s sound of raw and edgy rock. Echoed vocals have a vibe of fantasy about them, wishing for what they can’t have.

“I won’t say hi
Cause I know there’s other guys
I love you I know
But you won’t say its a no”

BIGSOUND Festival takes place in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley from 5th-8th September.
