Explaining the track further it's about how Living in London, he's always struck by how everyone literally fly past each other at a frantic pace, without ever really taking notice or stock of one another. We’re so absorbed in our own worlds. So he wanted to write a song that would put a pause on all that, where the chilled groove would be a conduit for starting a conversation that he think's personally is long overdue. Nothing in the lyrics is particularly ground-breaking or anything like that, but he just had this feeling that there was a lot to be gained, by encouraging people to ask the question "how many of [us] took a step outside [our] world today." But you know, in London you can’t just walk up to people and accost them like that, even if you’re doing a survey, you have to ask for permission, so that’s why the song is called "Allow Me Say." The track would be perfect for a late night drive or being alone within your thoughts. Go stream "Allow Me Say" and check out his discography which is filled with outstanding tracks.
