NME Australia gave ‘Brain Candy’ a four-star review, writing that the band have made “the leap to a world where anything is possible.”


“Broader, more colourful and with a lot more to say… Hockey Dad are ready to take on the world,” the review reads.

The Windang duo recently postponed their upcoming hometown drive-in shows, citing safety issues with the condition of the venue. The shows will now take place from October 9-10.

Hockey Dad have also locked in a handful of 2021 tour dates, beginning with an appearance at January’s Yours & Owls festival. The band will tour nationally in April, playing shows in most major capital cities.

Last week, Hockey Dad covered ‘She Bangs The Drums’ by The Stone Roses as part of their appearance on Manchester: Covered. The series sees artists put their own spin on classic tracks.
