BAYONNE Releases New Song 'Same'
In a few short weeks Bayonne aka Roger Sellers will be releasing his new album Drastic Measures. Each song is orchestral in texture, unfolding in countless layers and kaleidoscopic tones. With great intensity of detail, the Austin-based artist deepens that sonic complexity by weaving in elegantly warped samples of the field recordings he's gathered for over a decade. But in its powerful melodies and pristine arrangements, Drastic Measures ultimately bears a pure pop lucidity even in its most grandiose moments.
Sellers today unveiled another song from the album titled "Same". He tells us the "song is mostly about the craft of making music and the experience involved with it. It's about progressing as an artist and the struggle to move forward to try new things and not stay the "same". I basically was writing it as I was going along to capture the raw feelings and insecurities that can occur when writing music. The lyrics "I think in the morning / I'm willing to proceed" and "I can't pick a lane for many more melodies" communicate the frustrations with procrastination and indecisiveness that I was battling, creatively, at the time."
Listen to the song below!
Bayonne's live show is intrinsic to project and seeing Sellers weave the songs to life in real life is not to be missed. A week before the release of Drastic Measures, Bayonne will play a special album-release show in his hometown of Austin, TX @ Mohawk (Indoors). The February 15th underplay is now SOLD OUT but was free for fans who pre-ordered the album from Waterloo Records, End Of An Ear, or via Bayonne's website. More info at https://www.bayonnemusic.com/.
