Tom Gaynor, the 24-year-old Aussie who writes and records as Allday, produces a breathy but scathing brand of rap (some may call him Drake from Down Under). He made his introduction in 2011, with his mixtape Noue Yesue and since has released an EP, an LP, and five more mixtapes, including this year’s excellent Soft Grunge Love Rap.
To parse through his interests and influences, the rising star made EW a playlist of favorite tunes. In their seeming disjointedness, it all starts making sense. Check it out below.
