Allday has cemented himself as one of Australia’s most interesting young songwriters and in demand performers. He is set to release his new album Starry Night Over The Phone–a cheeky take on Van Gogh’s “Starry Night Over the Rhone”–on July 12 via Ultra Records. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, executive produced by Simon Lam (Kllo) and features a rollcall of Australian talent including Japanese Wallpaper and Lonelyspeck. Today, Allday has released the latest video from the album for new single “Restless” which features Australian pop icons The Veronicas. Watch the video, directed by Rory Pippan, via NYLON and YouTube – https://youtu.be/NcMMLpMw8bc.
The “Restless” video captures the universal angst of daily suburban life, filmed in his Australian hometown. Allday tells NYLON, “I went back to Adelaide (my hometown) to shoot all the videos for this album and I wanted to capture the desolation and boredom of the place. Growing up in a boring place was fantastic for me because it sparked my imagination; where I’m from is really important to me. We used that as inspiration, and exaggerated a lot of the light and dark aspects of the place for this video.”
Allday recently made an appearance on internationally-respected Australian radio station triple j and brought in The Veronicas, Japanese Wallpaper and Simon Lam (Kllo) for his “Like A Version” session. Watch the goosebumps-inducing cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi” and live version of “Restless” live now.
