Watch our interview with Thomas Headon below!
London-born, Melbourne-raised breakout star Thomas Headon has unveiled his new EP, six songs that thomas headon likes and thinks that you would like too. To celebrate the release, the musician has curated an exclusive playlist for MILKY full of tracks that inspired his latest project.
“I’ve always written songs without a purpose, they’ve always just been a documentation of how I’m feeling at the time and then I’ve managed to put them into EP’s as a shared feeling or moment. These six songs are the first time that I’ve put together a collection of songs without a shared feeling, and more so just six songs that i fucking love, made for the my audience and hope they love too. I wrote these with some of my favourite people from all around the world and I’m so excited that everybody can finally have them, especially after I’ve been teasing them for months.” Headon shares.
CHICKEN TENDERS - DOMINIC FIKE
I don’t even know what this song means, but there is a meaning in there somewhere and I think it resonates with me. I also like that he’s just called the song Chicken Tenders, who does that?
KIWI - HARRY STYLES
I have a song called Wet Tongue on this EP and it’s just as chaotic and energetic as this. I love it so much.
ME & YOU TOGETHER SONG - THE 1975
I haven’t really thought about this until now just looking through my playlist, but this song is about just being hopelessly in love and I think that’s similar to some songs on my EP. I love songs like that, I don’t care how cringey they are they’re cute.
NIGHTS - FRANK OCEAN
This doesn’t really relate to the EP but it’s basically the song I had on repeat while making it. Guaranteed this will be in my top 5 songs this year.
WALKING ON A DREAM - EMPIRE OF THE SUN
Another absolute banger that just feels so summery to me. It didn’t really inspire me insanely, but definitely a tune. It just needed to be on this playlist.
YOUNG HEARTS RUN FREE - CANDI STATON
This song is how I wanted the EP to feel. Just feel good, not a bad vibe about it. I mean my EP does have some slower sadder songs but ignore that, this song is the energy I was tryna bring.
STEAL MY GIRL - ONE DIRECTION
I can’t exactly explain how this inspired the EP, but I think this is one of the best pop songs of all time. I’m in such a pop music phase right now, and this has been top of my soundtrack.
FIREFLIES - OWL CITY
Because I’d like to make myself belieeeeeveeeee, that planet earrrthhhh turnsssss, slooowwwwwwllyyyyyyyyy
