Today, New Zealand producer and songwriter BAYNK has released his highly anticipated sophomore EP, ‘Someone’s EP II’, following his acclaimed 2017 debut. The EP is a seven-track collection showcasing his pristine electronic production and innovative crafting of sounds, and features international talents including Sinéad Harnett, Glades, Martin Luke Brown and Hablot Brown. Alongside the previously released singles Water, Off Limits and Settle, there are four brand new cuts for your listening pleasure. Stream the EP, which is out via AllPoints, in full here.
After a truly rapturous performance at Coachella, BAYNK will be embarking on a headline tour throughout five countries from July 4th, playing to crowds across the US, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and Malaysia. Towards the end of his run of dates he will be performing at Lollapalooza in Chicago, HARD in Southern California, and the prestigious Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas 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 2 years, with releases amassing 110M+ collective plays. His releases are supported by beautiful visuals with collaborator/co-director Spencer Graves (Kendrick Lamar, Lauv), 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.
