Event Details

The quiet achiever

The record holder

The cult favourite

The #1 Dad

One of Australia’s most revered songwriter/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. And 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, acted, danced, lighted, styled, setup and packed-down by Iansek. He said that “it's a bit of an anti-videoclip videoclip... 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.”

Tom’s home city Melbourne will be the first to see Dads back in action, with a show at Howler in December.

 

LYRICS

Honest with myself yeh I’m all fessed up

Now I’m tripping to the country to see my lot

Picking up the pieces I’m all messed up can’t save it for another day

 

Feeling kinda lazy I just woke up

Sipping on my juice yeh there’s just enough

Articulating feelings that kinda rough

I’ll save it for another day

 

How many wrongs to right?

I’m doing all I can to stay upright

 

Lay down just don’t lay down

Find a little pep, you can take another step

Lay down just don’t lay down

Let this be a little song for you

 

Howling like the wind through a city block

I’m fixing all my fixes to get me fixed up

Smiling like a doll on a dusty shelf

Let’s save it for another day

 

All this instant news feels so old to me

These threads of conversation unstitching me

I see chatter isn’t helpful if it’s from your teeth

Save me from another day

 

How many songs to write?

I’m doing all I can to stay upright

 

Lay down just don’t lay down

Find a little pep you can take another step

Lay down just don’t lay down

Let this be a little song for you
