Today, New Zealand producer and songwriter BAYNK has released the official video for new single ‘go with u’, taken from his new sophomore EP, SOMEONE'S EP II. BAYNK co-directed/edited the visual with Spencer Graves (Kendrick Lamar, Lauv) and it features choreography from Ian Eastwood (Chance The Rapper, Childish Gambino). The visual provides a striking, extra-sensory new edge to the slick Hazey Eyes co-produced track, of which Ones To Watch noted its unique ability to "evoke a sense of serenity."
Following his acclaimed 2017 debut EP, SOMEONE'S EP II is a bold return showcasing BAYNK's pristine electronic production and innovative crafting of sounds, which This Song Is Sick calls "a new degree of talent for the rising artist, measured by both risk and restraint." The EP includes previously released singles ‘Water’, ‘Off Limits’, and ‘Settle’, alongside notable features from international talents including Sinéad Harnett, Glades, Martin Luke Brown and Hablot Brown.
Stream the EP, which is out via AllPoints, in full here.
After a rapturous performance at Coachella, BAYNK will embark on a summer tour throughout five countries, playing to crowds across the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and Malaysia. Towards the end of his run of dates he will be performing at Lollapalooza, Electric Forest, HARD, and the prestigious Life Is Beautiful, where he joins Billie Eilish, Zedd and RÜFÜS DU SOL on the line-up.
Born Jock Nowell-Usticke, BAYNK has seen a meteoric rise from sheer obscurity to the brink of breakout in just two years, with releases amassing 110MM+ collective plays. His releases are supported by beautiful visuals with collaborator/co-director Spencer Graves, and his immaculate creative vision doesn't end there; Jock is responsible for all art direction and artwork design (which he had shot by Korean photographer LINNNN), art directing his photo shoots (with photographer Eric Kelly), co-directing his live visuals (also with Spencer Graves and Tess Bjiere) and programming all his own lights for his impressive live show.
