NEW SONG ‘ANOTHER DAY’ – OUT NOW
Hello my friends…
It’s been a long time. It’s funny returning to (pardon the pun) this project after these years away. I’ve spent the time releasing albums with my other projects Big Scary and No Mono, building a music studio and just this year becoming an ACTUAL dad.
In recent times I found song ideas emerging that were neither Big Scary nor No Mono. I felt like writing a song just for myself again, and so in January this year I took myself and my ideas away for ten days and came back with sketches for songs that could only be #1 Dads. I spent the following months recording, applying myself industriously in the studio ahead of the impending arrival of our son, who we welcomed into the world in late May. At this point my focus shifted instantly from album cycles to feeding cycles, from loops to poops, from bass to bassinets, from ad-libs to dribble bibs.
It seems so fitting now that I have new #1 Dads. Today I would like to share the first taste of this music with you. This is ‘Another Day’, a song about not being able to put off tough things any longer, a song about finding light and strength when you feel dark and weak.
I made a video for it too. With this I wanted to see how much I could do with as little as possible, as well as put my dance moves and handstand skills to the test, they held up, ah…ok.
Also, I will be playing a special one-off show in Melbourne late December, before heading off to play Falls Festivals over NYE.
I hope you enjoy.
