by Allistair

Hey dudes! I'm Nashville-based pop artist Allistair, and I'm the sound of the pop revolution. Each song I make is crammed with real drums and guitars as much as it is smashed with synths and 808’s. It’s unapologetic pop punk that borrows from many genres, and this track Self-Control is no exception!
