He blew everyone away when he dropped into the triple j Like A Version studios recently for an original and a cover, and today Allday reveals the sweetly dark video for his track ‘Restless’ ft. The Veronica’s. The track is from Allday's upcoming third full length release Starry Night Over The Phone which will be released on Friday 12 July.
The 'Restless' video was directed and produced by Rory Pippan who was also behind Allday’s recent 'Lungs' video and has worked on multiple videos with Mallrat, as well as Fergus James and Carmouflage Rose.
"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."
Along with the video comes the announcement of a trio of in-store Starry Night Over The Phone album events down the East Coast starting on album release day, Friday 12 July. Details are:
Friday 12 July - 24Hundred, Melbourne. Starts 5pm
Saturday 13 July – Rocking Horse, Brisbane. Starts 4pm
Sunday 14 July – Red Eye Records, Sydney. Starts 4pm
Starry Night Over The Phone was recorded in Los Angeles and features a rollcall of Australian talent with the aforementioned The Veronicas on board for ‘Restless’, and fellow Adelaidean Lonelyspeck on ‘See You When I See You’. Keeping to the antipodean theme, the album was Executive Produced by Simon Lam.
Following the album release Allday will make his anticipated return to the Splendour in the Grass stage where he will bring along a rollcall of friends, before he takes the album on a mammoth national tour in August. Joining in for all tour dates are great friend and collaborator Mallrat, singer-songwriter E^ST and musician-on-the-rise JXN.
