Fast rising New Zealand artist BAYNK will play a rare set of headline shows this September.
Coinciding with the release of his brand new single ‘Come Home’, BAYNK will play at Wellingtons Meow and Auckands REC Bar.
Born Jock Nowell-Usticke, BAYNK has been on a fast rise over the last year with a string of singles which have amassed 13M+ plays on Spotify to date. Early singles like About Me and Could You began turning heads in early 2016, and it's been a whirlwind ever since with recent singles What You Need (featuring fellow NZ-native NÏKA) and Poolside further establishing BAYNK as a top new artist to watch.
Of BAYNK's break in to the scene, Noisey says, "the New Zealand kid puts a song up on Soundcloud in early 2015 while traveling around Europe. He loses his laptop, goes surﬁng for a week and returns to ﬁnd the track going bonkers. Next he’s on the Laneway Festival line-up and getting emails from music industry people wanting to talk.”
With a structural pop sensibility that sets him on a level of his own, BAYNK's releases have earned him early critical praise as well as support from major tastemaker YouTube channels such as Majestic Casual and Chill Nation and hitting #1 on Hype Machine. Known for his sensual textures and layered electronic arrangements, BAYNK has also released notable remixes for gnash’s i hate u, i love u as well as A R I Z O N A’s I Was Wrong.
