Hockey Dad Deliver Exciting New Sounds on ‘Rebuild Repeat’

Windang duo add a fresh twist to their festival-ready rock anthems on new album

Hockey Dad

Ian Laidlaw*

Australia’s live music scene is struggling, but one of its most formidable bands keep delivering festival-ready rock anthems.

Rebuild Repeat is unmistakably Hockey Dad, but Zach Stephenson and Billy Fleming also embrace exciting new sounds in these songs.

From the coolness of the Hottest 100-nominated “Still Have Room” to the hopeful “Base Camp”, an invigorating buoyancy uplifts this album at every turn.
