Bayonne is set to release new album 'Drastic Measures' on February 22nd.
Austin's Roger Sellers takes inspiration from the circadian rhythms that both underpin and disrupt life on the road, and the slightly surreal, limbo-like existence it prompts.
“After a while you kind of start to lose touch with home and your friends and your family,” says Sellers. “You come back and feel like you’ve missed out on a lot, like you’re stepping into a whole different life.”
These feelings are sluiced into new album 'Drastic Measures', with Bayonne expanding on his fusion of minimalist and pop tendencies.
New song 'Uncertainly Deranged' is online now, a coy, melodic, and strangely infectious track, something that seeps into your subconscious.
"As the title suggests, it's about uncertainty with one's own mind, the angst of creative pressure, and self-denial. It's basically a conversation with myself during a period of heavy touring. Stylistically, I was looking to do something a bit more upbeat. I wanted momentum and good tempo to drive it. Once the beat and instrumentation were set, the melody and lyrics came very naturally.”
Tune in now.
