One of Australia’s most revered songwriter and producers Tom Iansek returns with his first music in five years as #1 Dads

Iansek is one half of both Big Scary and No Mono - between them he’s released three albums since #1 Dads was last heard from, which was back in 2015 with the LP About Face. That slow-burner of a record eventually saw #1 Dads win the AIR award for 'Breakthrough Independent Artist' and sell-out shows nation-wide, including 5 consecutive nights at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory (still the record-holder). In that time Iansek has also become a dad for real - his son was born in May this year.

For the astute observer, the Falls Festival lineup announcement gave a hint that new music was on the cards - #1 Dads will be playing at all four Falls shows. Now Pieater is proud to share the song ‘Another Day’, a song about dealing with negativity and moving through it. As Iansek says, “this song is like a little ray of light in a dark place”. 

The music video was written, produced, directed, filmed, choreography, acted, lighted, styled, setup and packed-down by Iansek. He said that “it's a bit of an anti-video clip video clip. I wanted to see how far I could go with as little as possible. The music-making process followed this ethos in a way too, perhaps it is an extension of that.

Another Day is out now through Pieater.
