#1 Dads releases third single ‘Orion’ from upcoming LP

Taken from their upcoming LP 'Golden Repair'

#1 Dads – the side project of Big Scary vocalist-guitarist Tom Iansek – has released a new track, ‘Orion’.

The song is the third single from the Melbourne alt rock outfit’s forthcoming album, ‘Golden Repair’, following last year’s ‘Another Day’ and ‘Freedom Fighter’, which was released in January.

Listen to ‘Orion’ below.


The song is about opening yourself up to “quiet introspection,” Iansek said in a press statement. “‘Orion’ is an invitation… to feel whatever it is you’re feeling, comfortable or uncomfortable.”

‘Golden Repair’ will be #1 Dads’ third studio album, and their first full-length release since their 2014 sophomore LP ‘About Face’.

#1 Dads wrapped up a national Australian tour at the end of 2019 which saw them play Falls Festival in Lorne, Marion Bay, Byron Bay and Fremantle.

Iansek has also spent the last few years releasing work with additional side project, No Mono, which is a collaboration with Lowlakes vocalist Tom Snowden. No Mono released their second album ‘Islands Part 2’ in 2019.

Big Scary, Iansek’s band with drummer Joanne Syme, released their latest album ‘Animal’ back in 2016. It featured one of their most successful singles ‘The Opposite Of Us’.


‘Golden Repair’ arrives Friday 6 March via Pieater. Check out the LP artwork and full tracklist below.
