Dads [Aus]

At the end of 2010’s long winter, Tom Iansek, one half of rising eclectic indie pop duo Big Scary, began a particularly fertile period of writing and recording. Holed up in his house, the prolific Melbourne songwriter laid down a full album of solo recordings that would eventually be gathered under the Dads moniker.

At the end of 2010’s long winter, Tom Iansek, one half of rising eclectic indie pop duo Big Scary, began a particularly fertile period of writing and recording. Holed up in his house, the prolific Melbourne songwriter laid down a full album of solo recordings that would eventually be gathered under the Dads moniker. Recorded variously in his garage, bedroom and living room, Iansek’s Dads recordings bear a similar wide-­‐reaching, anything goes approach to that of his main gig: ranging from warm, hushed balladry to cathartic rock numbers to gorgeously spare instrumentals, the tracks are united only by an effortless pop sensibility and lightness of touch that are quickly becoming the hallmarks of Iansek’s ever-­‐ growing body of songs. Where Big Scary’s tracks typically make use of just a couple of instruments, Dads finds Iansek experimenting with a fuller, more layered approach, adding flourishes of bass and piano and vocal harmonies and mandolins and glockenspiels to his intricate guitar work, making for a rich, diverse and rewarding listen. « hide
