Congratulations to Jo Syme (’04) who along with her band partner, Tom Lansek from the acclaimed band, Big Scary, have released a new album titled ‘Daisy’.
Recorded during Melbourne’s lockdown last year, in the Band’s own recording studio in Collingwood, ‘Daisy’ is the band’s fourth album.
With hip friendly grooves of funk and disco, the new album sees Jo take on equal lead vocal duties for the first time, having usually been heard on backing vocals and drums. Jo also took on co-engineering and production duties. ‘Daisy is our most playful album to date. For the first time there are no guitars to be heard. It’s full of drama, at times a little bit spooky and silly. In general we’re exploring naivety and fantasy versus facing the complexities of reality,’ said Jo.
Big Scary was formed back in 2006 and past albums include Vacation, Not Art and Animal. The Band’s single, The Opposite of Us reached number 17 in Triple J’s Hottest 100 of 2016.
