Splendour Highlights: #1 Dads

#1 Dads is the solo alias of Tom Iansek, the front man of acclaimed alt-pop band and Splendour alumni, Big Scary.

The project began as a way for Iansek to remain creative between Big Scary album cycles and touring.

#1 Dads delivers songs about the mundane, songs about desire, songs about loss… themes sung about for centuries, and delivered in a restrained and humble manner.

The project has released two albums, Man of Leisure in 2011 and About Face in 2014.
