Melbourne-based #1 Dads is the solo project of Big Scary's Tom Iansek. He calls it 'music your dads make', Sydney Festival calls it 'slow-burning bedroom pop', but whatever you want to call it, it's a treat for the ears.
Using it as an outlet for other songs that might not fit in with his other, better-known project, his LP About Face has been gradually built over the last 2 years, collaborating with artists like Ainslie Wills and Tom Snowdon along the way in a variety of bedroom, garage and loungeroom recording sessions.
As a self-confessed Daddy's girl myself, I can't see anything wrong with music that your dad makes. Although to be honest, if my dad made any kind of music it sure as hell wouldn't be anything like this.
