Hockey Dad Returns With New Single “Homely Feeling”

Hockey Dad, the Australian surf-rock duo of lifelong best friends Zach Stephenson and Billy Fleming, returned today with their infectious new single “Homely Feeling,” their first new music since their 2016 debut album Boronia. The band wrote the track about struggling to stay sane while on the road: “We’re always comfortable when we’re back home. This one’s for when you’re surrounded by heaps of people and kinda freaking out. Whenever you’re heaps off it and just wanna be back home.” LISTEN “HOMELY FEELING” HERE

Consequence of Sound premiered “Homely Feeling” today, saying the track is “…a forceful, paranoid cut with a jagged chorus. The song’s refrain, especially, sounds plucked straight out of early ’90s Olympia, which makes sense considering Blend Inn was recorded at the same spot where Nirvana recorded their last song.”

“Homely Feeling” is available now on SpotifyiTunes, and Apple Music. The song will appear on Hockey Dad’s second album Blend Inn, due out in 2018 on Kanine Records. Watch this space for more details.

Hockey Dad kicks off a North American tour next week, including headlining dates and an opening slot with The Frights.
