New Zealand producer and songwriter BAYNK has released a brand new collaborative single with UK artist and vocalist Sinéad Harnett. The track is titled ‘Settle’ and is available everywhere now via AllPoints.
‘Settle’ finds BAYNK showcasing his signature pop sensibilities alongside textured electronic elements and tight arrangement, revealing some of his best work to date. Previously collaborating with artists such as Disclosure,Rudimental, and Ryan Hemsworth, Sinéad Harnett adds a stunningly raw vocal with sweeping melodies giving the track a sensuous, poignant edge.
Of the single, BAYNK details, “Meeting Sinead for the first time was like seeing a friend I hadn’t seen in 10 years. Catching up about what we’d missed over the years led to settle being written. I didn’t want to overshadow the touching vocal with intense production so I left it minimal and let the words dictate the music. Can’t wait for you all to hear it, Sinead’s voice is incredible.”
Harnett adds, “The first day I met Baynk was the day we wrote settle. As soon as I walked into the room I felt like he was family. I always enjoy those writing sessions the most because you feel comfortable enough to open up. The story behind the song was based on the in between before you’re with someone and after you’ve started seeing each other. That dreaded unknown and the confession that you do want it to move forward. BAYNK’s clean heart translates in his music and I’m so excited for us to do more together!”
The new single is a precursor to an upcoming EP from the NZ producer and a follow-up to a previous double A-side release ‘Be In Love’ / ‘Years,’ which dropped earlier this year. His first release since fall 2017’s debut ‘Someone’s’ EP, the double A-side was released alongside an incredible video for ‘Be In Love,’ which was co-directed by Spencer Graves whose credits include work with Kendrick Lamar and Lauv.
