Bayonne premieres eye-catching new video for ‘Appeals’

The Texan musician will release an album later this year.
Bayonne – aka Texas-based musician Roger Sellars – has shared a mesmerising new video for ‘Appeals’, check it out below, first on Dork.

The track is taken from upcoming debut album ‘Primitives’, out 4th November via City Slang (EU) / Mom&Pop (US) (pre-order it here).

“The visuals for ‘Appeals’ were an experiment in creating the illusion of growing crystals using household objects like ziploc bags, cellophane, and plastic trinkets,” director Zach Stone explains. “We shot a lot of real crystals as well, attempting to blur the line between the organic and artificial materials.”

Of the track, Roger says: “’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 (including the super sped up sample) 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, which fostered a totally new way of arrangement for me. It also takes the most work involved in playing it live because there’s more simultaneous loops that are brought in and out than any other live song.”

Bayonne has a number of live dates coming up, two of which are in the UK – you can find him at London’s Shacklewell Arms on 20th October, and at Simple Things two days later.
