Music transcends time, languages and culture, and New Zealand producer BAYNK is an aficionado of creating tracks that are the epitome of just that. The once chemical engineering graduate turned top-charting producer and festival performer, has touched souls all over the globe with his shimmery synths and dreamy soundscapes, often but not thrusting us into a reverie of pastel feel-good vibes. Since dominating charts with collaborations, BAYNK has steadily risen to the top and is now back with another stellar collaboration – "Settle" featuring the shining London R&B artist Sinead Harnett.
Opening with lush but subtle dance beats in juxtaposition with the murmurs of a crowd, "Settle" is an instantaneously infectious song, flawlessly superimposed with Sinead's rich and striking vocals. With vocals shining brightly, the almost tropical-house beats adds an air of subtle effervescence that illuminates the falsettos flitting in and out of the chorus.
Absolutely ethereal and enthralling, BAYNK and Sinead weave together a relatable story of the in-between – before you're with someone and after you've started seeing each other, the awkward, mysterious and wholly dreaded unknown of wanting to confess true feelings to move on. It's a song that perfectly illustrates the feelings bottled up in such an experience, a visceral telling that evokes all the right emotions.
BAYNK will be going on a North American tour starting on October 31st.
