“Speeding” is a staggering achievement for the 26 year old artist – from slow burning contemplative tracks, to bittersweet tales of love and a flourish or two of upbeat party ready tracks, the record showcases just how much he has evolved in the last few years.
Speaking to Mass Appeal, massive cult act Allday, aka Tom Gaynor reminisces on making his sophomore record, “Speeding” – “I finally had the opportunity to record vocals properly on this album, so we went to good studios and spent days on every song,” he says. “All the features are friends. It’s the end of a particular era in my life and the songs feel like tying up loose ends.”
Featuring cameos and collaborations from fellow Aussie artists Nyne, Mallrat and Japanese Wallpaper, “Speeding” marks the highly anticipated release following his 2015 mixtape, “Soft Grunge Love Rap” and 2014 debut album, “Startup Cult” which charted at number 3 on the ARIA charts, just behind Ed Sheeran and Sia.
