Big Scary at Pianos

Big Scary, the Australian duo of Tom Iansek and Jo Syme, played at Pianos last night (Wednesday October 24th).

Big Scary have been a band since 2006, and they released their first songs back in 2008 .

The electric guitar driven “Gladiator” as well as the keyboard driven “Falling Away” were really great live, even for people in the audience who hadn’t necessarily heard the album versions of those songs.

Big Scary ended their set with “Purple” off of their Vacation LP, which sounded a bit out of place (it’s more aggressive, with a spoken word chorus) compared to their other songs.

“Anhedonia” by Skinny Jean

Skinny Jean is a little known band from Australia, but they’ve got a great song called “Anhedonia.” FYI, anhedonia means “the inability to take pleasure in activities one would normally find enjoyable.”
