alluriHailing from Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana state in Southern India, London-based alt-rock singer/songwriter Redd Alluri, shares ‘I See People’, which is lifted from his forthcoming EP ‘Who Are We?’, released via Life Is Thus Records at the end of August.

‘I See People’ is a darkly reflective, Pink Floyd-esque track, drenched in an ethereally hypnotic and yet unsettling psychedelic rock vibe.

Speaking of leaving his home and travelling the world (and completing his Masters in Finland), Alluri reveals…”Travelling deconstructed my ego.. It helped me understand myself better which helped my writing. Every new place added a sense of romanticism to my daily writing sessions.”alluri2Interestingly, the EP’s cover image, was found in a junk shop in Brighton – explains Alluri – “we have no idea who the woman is, she looked like an Elsie to us. We have four other photos of Elsie at various points across the Scottish Highlands that we will use for other artwork. If anyone recognises her please let us know, we would love to be able to put her real name out there.”

Songwriting

Alluri Music Songwriting

Indian indie may not be a genre with which you are best acquainted, but tonight’s exclusive will change all of that

London based songwriter Redd Alluri is an artist caught between two cultures. Growing up in India and completing his studies in Europe, he’s been influenced by both eastern and western sensibilities and has used this as the inspiration behind the Inidian-indie of Man Of Truth.

Alluri makes this clear in his description of Man Of Truth, explaining: “This is a love song, sung by a guy suffering from a split personality from two perspectives.. I had written this song after I had been back home in Hyderabad after having circumnavigated the world over a year. This song gave me closure over my travels and felt I was finally back home.”

Alluri is inspired by The Smiths and Nick Cave among others. We also think that he has a strong alt-rock vibe and that fans of Live, Everclear and Candlebox will find much to enjoy Man Of Truth. Don’t just our word for it, though, listen for yourself…
