Big Scary

The story of Big Scary begins in 2006, when Melbourne duo Tom Iansek and Jo Syme, armed with just acoustic guitars and egg shakers, started playing songs together in the living room of Jo’s parents’ house. After a bit of a break, the two reconvened in 2008, this time with more instru... Read More

  • Feature: Big Scary: ‘It's A Long-Term Thing' ..
    On the morning after the night before, CAITLIN WELSH pinned down Big Scary’s Jo Syme and Tom Iansek to discuss island paradises, the challenges of independence and “making it”. There’s a song that ended up on Big Scary’s first EP, 2009’s Earl Street , but originally popped up on their Unearthed page . It’s called ‘This Weight’, and it has one of the best riffs Pearl Jam never wrote. Driven by a growling hunk of guitar distortion that rumbles unrelentingly along the bottom of the track, with scrappy, punishing hi-hats and a sneering vocal that nods at ...

  • Review: Big Scary - Vacation
    A common lament amongst music fans is that certain albums would be greatly improved if only the artist had cut certain songs from the tracklist. But Vacation – the debut full-length from Melbourne-based indie-rock duo Big Scary – marks the most striking occurrence in recent memory for which the distinction between the band’s worthwhile and sub-par tracks is so staggeringly clear. To this curious end, Vacation is spread over two halves. The first indulges many of the pretenses for which some people dismiss indie rock: half-baked noodling in the name of experimentation; painfully ironic lyrics; pieces that flirt with sonic material ...

  • Feature: Jager Nominees: Are You Indie Out O ..
    Ahead of tomorrow’s Jagermeister Independent Music Awards in Melbourne, we ask some nominees whether they’re independent by necessity or choice. Big Scary (Answered by Tom Iansek) Nominated for: Breakthrough Independent Artist Of The Year What constitutes an "independent" artist to you? Obviously an unsigned artist, but I believe being “independent” more broadly encompasses the ability to shape the band in whatever way feels most natural to the artist, free from outside opinion, judgment and pressure. Are you independent out of necessity or choice? Both. We are lucky that we have the ability to stay independent as an artist ...
  • Tubelord - R o m a n c e
    I’ve got some good – nay, great – news for you dear reader. Tubelord sound like Tubelord again. Yes! Cast your minds back to 2008 when Big Scary Monsters put out the band’s debut 7” 'Feed Me a Box of Words', consequently making them your new favourite band. I don’t blame you – they very quickly became my favourite band back then, too. But, we had good reason didn’t we? That single took math rock and basically introduced us all to it. The then-three piece took odd time signatures to a whole ‘nother level, incorporating scarily complex riffs within ...
