Australian Pop Duo Big Scary Falling for America

Australian duo Big Scary bring a bit of New Wave minimalism to Post-Modern pop with "Falling Away," the lead single to their upcoming debut LP, Vacation, which is set for a U.S. release on September 18. Lead vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Tom Iansek and drummer/backing vocalist Joanna Syme construct a piano-versus-drums dichotomy throughout the songthink Night and Day-era Joe Jacksonalternating between a biting, insistent rhythm and strikingly lush, melodic passages.
