#1 Dads have been on our radar for a while now, with the second album ‘About Face’ having a solid place on our car mixtapes since it’s release in August last year. The solo project from Tom Iansek, who also croons for Big Scary, captured our hearts with the first single Return To, featuring the gorgeously haunting vocals from Tom Snowdon from Lowlakes.

And this morning our crush exploded beyond just scribbling:

No.1 Dads

on our notebooks, with the Like A Version on Triple J this morning. Covering another one of our faves FKA Twigs with Two Weeks, Tom I + Tom S successfully eliminated any sense of productivity for the day, as it’s hard to work when you’ve melted into a puddle on the ground. Not to forget the faultless harmonies from Ainslie Wills, who also shares a highlight track on the album So Soldier, and help from Chris Port & Angus Rigby.

If you haven’t already listened on repeat, it’s a damn beautiful track to both relax and excite you into the weekend.
