Since forming in Melbourne in the second half of the 2000s, Big Scary has been a partnership between Tom Iansek and Jo Syme. Syme plays drums while Iansek plays guitar and keys and has produced the majority of the band’s recorded output. In the early years, such as on Big Scary’s 2011 debut album, Vacation, it was fair to call Iansek the band’s lead vocalist. These days, however, those duties are more evenly split.

Me and You is Big Scary’s fifth studio album and the duo’s second consecutive release to be a true, meet-in-the-middle collaboration. Though, compared to its predecessor, 2021’s Daisy, which centred on synthesisers and pop-opera playfulness, Me and You is a more restrained and earnest collection of songs.

Despite its introspection, it covers a wide range of sounds that sweeps across the two artists’ shared and separate visions and projects; even as Big Scary, they’ve crossed a number of genres and influences over the past decade and a half.  Connection is the cornerstone of this album. In their exploration of love found and lost, longtime collaborators Tom Iansek and Jo Syme paint the various textures of human relationships: grief, loneliness, hope and love.
