Breakthrough New Zealand producer and songwriter Baynk has today released his new single Off Limits, a collaboration with Australian pop sensation Glades. Off Limits is a slick electro-pop gem, showcasing Baynk's incredible knack for embracing modern musical innovations, brought to life with the serene sounds of Glades vocalist/guitarist Karina Wykes.
Baynk (real name Jock Nowell-Usticke) has seen a meteoric rise from sheer obscurity to the brink of breakout in just two years, relentlessly touring the US and amassing over 90M+ streams across platforms to date.
Recent single Settle with UK artist and vocalist Sinéad Harnett was supported by a video co-directed by Baynk and Spencer Graves, whose credits include work with Kendrick Lamar and Lauv.
Glades are an electronic-pop trio from Sydney, who were propelled into the limelight through endorsement from Troye Sivan for their cover of his single ‘Fools’ in 2015. With a massive 80M streams of their singles to date, they have just released their acclaimed debut album To Love You.
The new single is a precursor to an upcoming EP from the NZ producer and a follow-up to a previous double A-side release Be In Love / Years, which dropped earlier this year.
His first release since fall 2017's debut Someone's EP, the double A-side was released alongside an incredible video for Be In Love, which was also co-directed by Spencer Graves.
Now based in the US, Baynk is returning home to New Zealand this summer to play Rhythm and Vines in Gisborne (28-Dec - 1-Jan) and Rhythm and Alps in Wanaka (29-Dec - 1 Jan). Stay tuned for more news to follow.
