New Zealand born, London-based electronic artist and producer BAYNK has today announced his ADOLESCENCE tour, following the release of his debut album of the same name. BAYNK will kick off his Australia & New Zealand tour in Auckland at The Powerstation on August 12 before heading to San Fran on August 13, Brisbane’s The Brightside on August 18, Melbourne’s The Espy on August 19 and concluding in Sydney at Oxford Art Factory on August 20.
BAYNK’s innovative sets have led him to sold out shows across the US and Asia, including performances at iconic festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Electric Forest and Life is Beautiful. As the world begins to open again, BAYNK is keen to be back on the road, returning to the stage recently with a sold out show at London’s XOYO last November, and a 28 date US tour due later this year.
BAYNK’s debut album Adolescence chronicles a time in which Jock wasn’t expressing himself musically. “I’d never got to write about the most heartbreak I’ve experienced, the most lust I’ve felt or the most high I’ve ever been,” he says. “The music I’m doing now was not an option, I didn’t even know it existed.” Drawn from experiences that took place between New Zealand and Europe, the songs were recorded between Los Angeles and London, where he relocated to last year.
Having started out in bands, BAYNK’s transition from his laptop to the live stage has been a natural process. BAYNK’s curiosity lead him to expand his sets into a captivating performance that incorporates singing and saxophone with his own production. “I’m always looking for something to make the live show more interesting; it became show visuals, and then playing saxophone better or singing better, making the shows as incredible as they could possibly be,” he says.
