1. Tell Us a Little About Yourself

I sound like a bloke with a lot of opinions who is good at making his rants rhyme. I enjoy long arguments with idiots and entertaining people with music. My music is designed to make you feel less alone in this death trap we call existence.

2. Keeping Busy

The new album Surrender To Victory is my third LP and was released in March. Since then I’ve dropped two singles/videos (‘Drums’ and ‘Australian Dreaming’) and toured Australia with Mac Miller. Now I’m on a tour of my own and having a blast, with more clips and singles on the way, and working on releasing a second project later this year but that’s still very hush hush (except when I talk about it).

3. Best Gig Ever

Too many to choose from… Playing Sydney Big Day Out, national tours with Pharoahe Monch, Drapht, Hermitude and Spit Syndicate, opening for Public Enemy, opening for Dizzee Rascal; I really can’t call it. Something tells me the Sydney launch at the Basement will be crazy though…

4. Current Playlist

Ngaiire (a Sydney-based singer who features on a couple of my songs) has just released her debut album and it’s amazing. Also pumping a lot of Action Bronson, Onra, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Maya Jane Coles, Ta-Ku, etc.

5. Your Ultimate Rider

I just want a bottle of vodka, a bottle of soda water and some fresh limes…and some good friends/fans to share it with.

The Tongue plays The Basement on Friday July 19 and the Mona Vale Hotel on Saturday July 20.
