Big Scary, Say Hi

Big Scary, Say Hi

Big Scary's second album contrarily asserts itself as art by its very title, Not Art. Where the duo's debut, Vacation, was of the navel-gazing variety, Not Art uses a hip-hop approach to production. Ironically, "Why Hip-Hop Sucks in '13" is a piano-led number, which highlights Joanna Syme's vocals, but the syncopated beats of "Luck Now" refocus on the hip-hop aspect. "Invest" handily brings hip-hop sensibilities to Big Scary's moody pop. The best bits are in classic Big Scary style: the Jeff Buckley - informed "Lay Me Down," which works like a potent downer, while the Verve-informed "Belgian Blues" does the opposite. The irreverent Say Hi also performs, introducing songs from his not-yet-released album, Endless Wonder.
