OKP Premiere: Say 'Hello' To Andy Allo And Her Pop-Perfect Ways On A Lovely New EP
Perhaps you know of Cameroon-born pop-music maven Andy Allo as the angelic crooner that’s taken up co-signs from the likes of Prince and Janelle Monáe. Or maybe you’re one for the left-field boom-bap of Blu & Exile and recall that airy vox on their Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them standout “Ease Your Mind.” Wherever you place Allo’s voice, it seems to add the type of sonic grace that defines a tune. But today we have the honor of ushering in the former NPG vocalist’s new EP Hello; a 5-track compendium of pop prowess that has some pretty heavy Top 40 implications. Really, any one of these tracks could find a home on your radio dial, but what really shines on Hello is an impeccable command for pop composition, which is perfectly displayed at any one time on any of these five cuts, making her more kin to The Purple One than anyone could have possibly imagined. You can stream Andy Allo’s pop-perfect Hello EP below and if you happen to be in NYC this weekend, peep the paisley disciple live and direct at the Mercury Lounge this Saturday, April 18th.
