Alluri has had something of interesting journey. The Hyperabad born and raised songsmith relocated to the UK for his degree, before completing a Masters in Finland and heading out on the road of self discovery in the aftermath of his studies. Inspired by the humour of Ricky Gervais and the music of The Smiths, he penned his debut album, which is headed up by the twisting turns of lead single Texture Composure. To understand the musical mind a little more, we took him on a trip down memory lane.
