Fresh off his stellar Like A Version with The Veronicas, Aussie rapper Allday sat down to chew the fat on Episode 9 of Sneak Up.
The PEDESTRIAN.TV X Platypus Shoes podcast is hellbent on chatting with interesting people making waves in their respective industries, so naturally the Adelaide-native fits the brief (and then some).
Allday’s gearing up to release his latest album, Starry Night Over The Phone, so while we (im)patiently wait until July 12, we got poddy host Jack Colquhoun to pick his insanely creative brain.
If you’ve listened to Allday’s Like A Version, you’d think that political undertones were a major part of his music but the rapper – while incredibly appreciative of the importance behind politically-driven songs – says he only touches on such a topic when it “feels right.” Gotta keep it organic you guys, tune-making tip #1.
Allday goes on to chat about everything from his move to the States, his musical evolution from when he was first putting out bangers and the importance of having non-musician friends (gotta keep it grounded, tune-making tip #2).
The newly-relocated artist also gets candid about why there may be a hefty gap between albums (*cough* Melbourne raves *cough*) as well as how he ended up royally pissing off his sound engineer.
Plus, Allday tells us why he had to cancel his Nanna. Twice.
Get around this ep – and the rest of the Sneak Up episodes – on your usual suspects: Spotify, Apple Music, basically anywhere you can think of.
