THE ARTIST SERIES: ALLDAY

Friday, 26th June 2015

Since Australian rapper Allday (aka Tom Gaynor) started chalking up airtime on Triple J, he’s joined a new wave of Aussie hip hop artists making a mark on the local music scene. Off the back of his I Should Be Working On My Album But I’m Doing A Tour national tour, we caught up with the 24 year old Radelaidian to talk tunes.

SO TELL US, WHERE DOES THE NAME ALLDAY COME FROM?

My friend made it up when I was stoned and I took ages selecting my snacks from the IGA.

GIVE US THREE WORDS THAT SUM YOU UP.

Odd lil’ man.

WHAT ARE YOUR WORST HABITS?

I have many. Biting my nails, looking at my phone all the time, cutting people off in conversations, partying too hard, not calling my mum enough, not trusting people in relationships, eating junk food, going to sleep late, not exercising, I could go on.

WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING THESE PAST FEW MONTHS?

Working on my new album, hanging out with my friends, reading books.

WHAT KIND OF TUNES DID YOU LISTEN TO GROWING UP?

A mixture of underground hip hop, folk music and r&b.

WHICH ARTISTS INFLUENCED YOUR MUSIC?

David Bowie and Kanye.

WHAT ARE YOU LOVING NOW?

New Jamie XX record is great. If I’m listening to old music I listen to classic albums and ask myself why I can’t make one.

HOW HAS YOUR SOUND CHANGED AS YOU’VE EVOLVED AS AN ARTIST?

It’s gotten better I hope. And it’s probably sadder than it used to be.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RECENT TOUR.

Last week we finished a national tour in Sydney. We didn’t have enough beds in the hotel and slept 3 boys in 2 single beds pushed together. We had a way big party and ate yum pizza in Newtown.

FAVOURITE FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE?

Festival of the Sun in Port Macquarie, performing at dusk in the rain. There was something super magical about it.

FAVOURITE MUSIC MEMORY OF ALL TIME?

The first time I got into Triple J Hottest 100, that was basically the most fun ever.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT PERFORMING?

It’s the only time I feel like one of the humans.

DO YOU HAVE ANY PRE-PERFORMANCE RITUALS?

Stretching, drinking alcohol.

GOT ANY ROAD TRIP TRAVEL TIPS FOR US?

Bring an aux cord and Dettol for your hands.
