With his debut album due out later this year, Texas-based Bayonne, aka Roger Sellers, is sharing a new video for his second single ‘Appeals‘, from the upcoming record.

Having built quite a fan base in his Texan hometown over the past few years, encompassing a sound that compares to the likes of Panda Bear, Tory Y Moi & Caribou, Bayonne is set to release his debut album ‘Primitives’ on November 4th via City Slang.

In the words of Bayonne himself “‘Appeals‘ was one of the first songs I ever composed using a sample cut completely from an older song. The piano loop at the beginning was cut from a song that I recorded when I was about 17. I liked the way the piano sounded, so I wrote a whole new song around that loop.” 

Directed by Zach Stone, the video for Bayonne’s latest single ‘Appeals‘ compliment the musician’s addictive take on electronic pop beautifully. Zach shed some light on the thoughts behind the video when he said “The visuals for ‘Appeals’ were an experiment in creating the illusion of growing crystals using household objects like ziploc bags, cellophane, and plastic trinkets. We shot a lot of real crystals as well, attempting to blur the line between the organic and artificial materials.” 

Having previously played shows with Two Door Cinema Club, Caribou, Neon Indian, Chairlift, Thundercat & Battles, Bayonne is set to embark on a run of European tour dates in October.
