Aussie newcomers Hockey Dad prove that you don’t need much to make solid pop music. In Boronia, released via Brooklyn label Kanine Records, the duo takes punk minimalism and uses it to pare down their sunny and surfy songs to the bare essentials: chunky guitar hooks, tight-knuckled drumming, and emotionally direct vocals. Nothing groundbreaking or extraordinary here, just a collection of well crafted songs about girls, surfing, and skating. What more do you need?
